Shower Favours

These shower favours are for my sister's baby shower.  The lollies inside are Pascal caramels - only because they have pink and blue wrappers.  The plastic babies are a bit of fun.  I was going to make carrot jockey cupcakes with them, but I am not sure that she reads Cakes Wrecks, and so she may not appreciate them!

Tissue Flower

This card uses a flower created from tissue paper.  The tutorial to create the flower is on Splitcoast Stampers

I used different sized scallop circle nestabilities and inked the edges in 'old rose' Versamark ink.

Sketch Challenge SC276

This is the card I made for Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge number 276.  The card is very bright in real life.  I bought the cake die on sale, and then wondered how to incorporate it into a card.  It is quite large, so it would be suitable for a gift bag or scrapbook page.
Cardstock: unknown
Cutting:  scallop circle - Spellbinders, Cake die - QuicKutz, Corner rounder - EK Success.
Embossing:  ? and swiss dots - both Provocraft
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Other:  brown ink - VersaMagic

Baby Shower card

This card is for my sister's baby shower, which is in a couple of weeks.  She doesn't know if she is having a boy or a girl, so this card uses blues, pinks, greens and yellows.  I based this card on a design I saw on the internet, unfortunately I can't remember who did it.

Cardstock: unknown
Cutting:   apron lace punch - EK Success, grass punch - Martha Stewart
Patterned Paper:  My Minds eye
Stamps: Tree - Hero Arts, Sentiment - unkown
Other: Buttons, thread, ink
