Only Two Cherry Tips...

Hey hey hey, it's me Elin again ;)
At the moment I am on vacation, enjoying lazy days with my family and friends up in North Norway and MAN it's good <3

This week we are running with the"Anything goes" theme here at LLC, and it's always a joy to create when this theme comes along. This time I have made a babycard with Pion Design's latest collection Vintage Garden:
My card is as always made on a paperbag, and the top is punched with a lovely Martha Stewart punch.
My motive is a digi I found on Etsy, and as mentioned I have used Pion's paper this week. They were a bit too sharp in their colour to go with this image, so I have added rather much distress ink and gesso.
I have made a frame around my motive with a spellbinder die, and I found it really amusing to use something a bit different than a baby picture as main motive for a baby card.
And this English sentiment, which I had never heard before, is so adorable <3
All the lovely laces are from the LLC store, as are the cute hortensias from Kort&Godt. I have even let the cheesecloth come back for this card ;) It's been on a holiday here, I have not used it for a while now. 
The text strip I -as always- created on my computer; it says "congratulations on the baptism day".
 The yummy pearls are from Inkido, and I still adore the rhinestones lace.
I have added a shabby seam binding bow and the lovely "Greta Garbo" lace on the top of my card, along with a rose.

Hugs & Kisses
