Welcome Little One

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Allsorts challenge #135 New beginning

Penny Black at Allsorts January challenge love and hearts

The Pink Elephant challenge #TPE129 anything goes

Papertake Weekly challenge anything goes with the option of new

Whimsy Stamps #20 New beginnings

I love the simplicity of this design and it works so well with any colour

I stamped the image directly onto the card and then stamped the hearts on a very, very pale pink gingham and cut them out. I used 3D gel so that I could position each heart differently to try and give the impression that they were gently swaying on the ends of their string. Don't know if it worked but that was what I was aiming for lol

The delicacy of the sentiment finishes the design

Materials used

Moonbeam and Heartstrings from Ippity Stamps by Unity Stamp Co
Memento Rose Bud ink pad
Collall 3D glue gel
Gingham card from stash
