New Beginnings

   Today I'd like to share a card and tag I made using the Lili of the Valley 'Playtime Puppy' stamp. I decided to use a colour scheme that could be used for a boy or a girl and went with lilac and lemon.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers - it is such a quick little image to colour - and mounted it onto sparkly paper I had in my stash from Fizzy Moon.
   The background mats I punched with a Martha Stewart punch around the page, before embellishing it with glittery blooms, gems, Stickles and organza ribbon. I made the tag to match but also added a sparkly silver mat to match in with the wrapping paper I already had.

Anyway, hope you like them. I hope to enter them in this month's challenge over on the Scrapology blog which is 'New Beginnings', the Totally Papercrafts challenge which is 'New Baby', and at Papertake Weekly's challenge which is 'Make it Sparkle'.

Thanks for looking!
Best wishes
