Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Today I'd like to share a special card I recently made for the upcoming birth of a little girl in our church family.    I made this for our women's circle group to go along with our gifts.

I selected Whimsy Stamps, Cradled by the Moon, by artist Crissy Armstrong. 

Although pictured in the frame, it is given separately with the frame for their nursery.  

After stamping the image on Neenah #110 card stock I used my Copic markers for coloring.  I used the Penny Black Elegant Stitching die for the completed image and then cut a coordinating solid pink liner mat.   At this point I returned the image to my Misti and stamped the sentiment with Versafine black ink.  I used a confetti die with multiple size stars and the same solid pink paper  to make the extra stars scattered around the image.  

The frame opening was 6" square so I matched the small flower print and adhered it to a 6" card base.  Then I added the mat and image.

Inside the card I added a tagged sentiment that said, 

For this child, 
We have prayed.

With our quarantine situation, we certainly couldn't have a shower for the expecting parents.  However with the Amazon delivery of gifts, followed by the card and frame, we know they were showered with love from us. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.
