Congrats on your big news!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Well.. today something different than a Christmas or Winter card. :-) iam sooo ready for some other colors. So for my card today i not only wanted to use something fresh.. i also limited myself not to use any Designer paper. I have simply added color by using flowers and some ribbon. I think the idea works well with this cute Tingla stamp or any baby card. Just nice and whimsical in white and pink :-).

Here is what i have done. I used my circle Creative Memories shape and cut from Bazzill textured Cardstock my card base. You can see where i have not cut the top all the way around. Than i opened the card and cut a window with a smaller ring out. I than embossed a shimmery white paper with cuttlebug Embossing folder and adhered my ribbon to that and than layered it into my frame (of course from the inside i have covered up the ribbon ends with a piece of white paper)

The rest is pretty self explanatory. Just colored Tingla and the little bird in, i could not resist to give him some "newspaper" from yesterday's card to hold.

All the flowers have a nice coat of Stickles on it :-) and around the inner circle as well. I like to leave some ribbon ends farily long and the one end from the left was not really cooperating with me, so i just sat Tingla right over that piece. Just a bit more decoration since the card does not have any patterns going.
This card is also made for this months challenge over on Magnolia-liocus were you are challenged to make a shaped card! See today the very talented Jacques translation for this idea on her blog and over the month of December you can see the other Designers cards on their blogs. I can not wait to see what everybody else will come up with.

Stamps: Magnolia: Tingla (Spring 2008), Bird (So Jolly Christmas Collection), Label (Easter 2006)
Sentiment: Stampin up
Embellishments: Prima Marketing Roses, Karen Foster (Pink Floss ), Hero Arts (pearl stickers)
