Oh baby,baby

NEW BEGINNINGS is the theme  at AiFactory Challenge  this week.So new baby,home,job etc. or any other new occasion.You don’t need an AiFactory image to join in but there are some freebies if you’d like one of their images.You have until 11:59 EST Wednesday12th January to upload your project.If you’re uploading your project from an online gallery please tag your project with AIF063 so that we can find it easily and  leave you a comment.So stop by the challenge site to check out full details.Don’t forget to take a look at the beautiful DT creations while you’re there!

For my card I’ve used Cute Set of Booties.I wanted to stay away from the usual pink for a girl,blue for a boy or lemon if you make your card beforehand and don’t know !So I chose this houndstooth check paper.Initially I was going to team it with chocolate but the hit upon the idea of using kraft card.I paper pieced the booties then coloured the rest with Promarkers,using Metallic Silver for the eyelets.As I felt this was  a boy’s card I wanted to keep it quite simple so I added a little ribbon to the sentiment and some piercing to the top corners of the image and sentiment.I’m pleased how this turned out after trying something new.
