Framed birdie baby {lawnscaping challenge}

April 1st, and no fooling - it's time for another lawnscaping challenge :)  Although, I'm not fooling when I say that the blog post title is the best I could come up with this morning.  I am beyond exhausted!  Anyone else with sick kids wanna give me a holla?  Misery loves company *wink*

Back to the challenge: we're asking you to get creative with embossing!  For my sweet birdie card, I embossed the frame with an aqua powder (from zing!) and then colored it in with copic markers.  I fussy-cut it out, and stamped a little scene using images from "home sweet home."

I stamped all of the elements, and then masked them all to be able to add my clouds in the background.  The sentiment is just so perfect for a family welcoming their first child... I love it.


I hope you make time to play along.  We're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week:


Have a happy day!

  7. Love the contrast of your patterned paper with your bright zingy (pun intended!) aqua embossing! Wonderful card Elena - it would have been easy for the whole design to just be too much competing for attention, but you struck the balance perfectly!!

  8. I have to say, I think creating a scene has to be my most challenging technique, and you do it so effortlessly... how I admire you :)

    This is ADORABLE... and it isn't a typical baby card which makes it even better!!
