Welcome Baby!

Time for the weekly Stamp Simply Challenge: ssnotime121 "Love is in the Air - With Valentine's Day as our next major card-giving day on the horizon, let's get something ready to add to our stash. How about a card using a heart, Valentine or lovey-type theme -- no other rules -- let's just add to our stash with some hearts and/or lovey type cards -- and if you need a wedding card, this would be the perfect challenge for that too -- let's just love it up this week!!!"

I'm featuring a Our Daily Bread design's January "Noah's Ark" sentiment, making this a baby card.

I was excited to pull out a Heidi Swapp Ghost Shape...ghost shapes are clear, plastic shapes that you can dress up...I used a chunky glitter for mine today. I began by stamping the heart with the Tsukineko Essential Glue Pad, then used chunky glitter over the entire surface.

Look at this gorgeous new paper available at ODBD! It's SEI Juliette "First Kiss" and "Secret Rendezvous." The striped "Secret Rendezvous" has a lovely sheen, which plays perfectly off of my glittered heart.

A "welcome baby" flag is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink onto a blush colored cardstock, then anchored to the heart with a Foof-a-La button and May Art's (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) Ivory colored twine bow.
