Friday Sketchers #42

This is my take on the card sketch #42 by Friday Sketchers. It is really very sweet and girly so I thought I would do a 'congratulations' card for a friend who is due to deliver her second baby girl next week. I met Wing at a summer camp class that I had signed up for Asher and myself last summer. It turned out we were living around the same estate and subsequently, both our kids went to the same playgroup class and we met again! Wing has been really helpful, offering me lifts for marketing sometimes especially since she knows we do not have our own transport.

I used the 'Postbox' Sugar Nellie stamp for the image. I must confess that I am not a 'girly girl' kind of person but I was totally impressed by this range of stamps from Sugar Nellie. The images are so sweet and lifelike and well- drawn. Its no wonder that their popular stamps are sold out almost all the time! Another plus, I like the size of their images too!

Back to the challenge, I have inverted the sketch 90 degrees anti- clockwise and replaced the flower motif with a cute romper sticker I found amongst my old stash again! So I am definitey feeling satisfied that I have been using up stash in my current projects...I stamped on the florishes at the sides too...hmmm, love the birds there.
