Sweet Little One

Only a few more days until Christmas, and I've already moved on from making Christmas cards. 
Here's a card inspired by the Badgely Mischka Spring 2013 Runway Collection which is the Inspiration Challenge website over at Splitcoaststampers today.  The soft blush, creams, and pearly vintage hues inspired me to make a vintage baby card.  I love Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Vintage Baby set - the images are so easy to use and this one in particular is very easy to color even you don't feel that confident about coloring. It was also very easy to mask with a stamped image on a post-it-note so that I could sponge around the image with Distress ink while still in the Nestie. All panels have been stitched and I added some lace and pearls to help with the vintage look. The rose has been sponged with SU's Blushing Bride ink to match and the bow is jute twine made by American Crafts.
Supplies include:
Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings dp
Spellbinders Nestabilities Ovals Petite
MFT Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics
Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
SU Blushing Bride ink
American Crafts jute
Flower (Wild Orchid Crafts)
Sewing machine
