Baby Basket - CPS #264

Welcome Delightful friends and family!!
I needed to make a baby card for a friend's first grandbaby, it's a girl!! After having 5 sons (yes, 5!) she finally got her a girl. Bless her heart!

Again, as usual I'm taking the picture at night with poor lighting, I really need to invest in a light box or get my hubby to make one for me.  Any suggestions out there?

I had fun using this sketch from Card Positioning Systems (#264).  I was also excited to get this new stamp set from Gina K Designs, a set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger called Basket Additions 2. It has so many wonderful choices to fill the basket, such a great idea for a stamp set! So of course I needed to get the original stamp set with the basket (Holiday Basket) to complete this adorable image.  The designer paper is also from Gina K Designs and it's called Petals & Wings.  It was used to paper piece a couple of the baby objects in the basket and as a background mat to the green embossed (ProvoCraft EF) card stock.

Other ingredients I've used are: Bazzill card stock, Memento (rich cocoa and tuxedo black) Ink, the ribbon is from my stash and I've used an assortment of Copic Markers to color the image.  I've also used dimensionals to pop up the focal piece.  The finished card is A2 size.

Thanks for visiting and God bless!

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.  Psalm 103: 2-4
