A New Baby

Good morning all, it's Thursday already!
I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend!
I'm off out to lunch on Sunday to celebrate a family birthday
but as it's Father's Day, I'm hoping to treat my dad to lunch on Saturday.
If not, we can make it another day!
The card I have to share today is another left-overs card!

The little image was a left over piece from the La Pashe
Decoupage sheet Baby Bath.
My card base is 6"x6" & I've added a design paper which is also from La Pashe.
I made a panel using another La Pashe design paper.
I cut out the image with a spellbinders circle die & matted on  to a scalloped circle
cut from the same CS as the base. I also cut a little frame from the same cs &
popped it up on some foam pads for dimension.
I added some ribbon & lace from my stash before I added the panel to the card 
using some foam tape for even more dimension.
The letters are die cut too.

A little side view which will hopefully show the dimension!
Thanks for popping in, I hope you like my little card!

Leftover Wine

Good morning all!
Leftover wine? Fact or Fiction? lol
Actually, the card I have to share with you today is another that
I made using left over bits & pieces from the  La Pashe  
Grumps -Time for Wine decoupage sheet!

For this one, I used an A6 card base.
I die cut the image & inked with green liquid chalk ink.
I cut a mat from a scrap of Kraft card, 
 a frame & some fish tails from the last of the scraps of paper
from La Pashe. The stars were also cut from some scrap paper.
I cut them out & popped them up on foam squares!
These were all given the ink treatment too!

The sentiment is from a Tonic Tape Runner with has 
Happy Birthday in several different fonts. I ran it along another
scrap of craft card which I fishtailed at one end.
The little bow is one of my recycled bits of ribbon!
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you like this little card!
