Welcome Tahnee Grace

Good Morning All,

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! This card is to welome little Tahnee Grace the brand new daughter of my husband's workmate Brett and his wife Natalie; also a little sister for their daughter Summer.

This beautiful image is by KLM Digistamps and has been coloured using Copic Markers.

The pattern papers I've used are from the SU Pink Pirouette Designer Paper Series howver I've chosen SU Blush Blossom Carstock as I find it a closer match to the pattern paper. I've used CM circle shape cutters to cut the image out and the background scalloped circle was created using a MS Corner Punch and you can see how to acheive this by checking out this tutorial by the very talented Claudia Rosa.

I have sewn all the panels of my card in either straight stitch or zigzag stitch. The bottom panel was cut out using a Nestabilities Label Die and the Congratulations sentiment is from the SU Warmest Regards set and has been embossed in Silver.

Lace, Ribbon, Pearls and all things girly finish off the card ~ along with this gorgeous little charm below that was a gift from my friend Deb whose help was invaluable making this card. She also pointed me in the right direction for the Digistamp and let me know about the doily tutorial!
