Baby girl!

How cute is this image from Bugaboo?! I made this card for a friend´s friend who had a baby girl recently to go along with those socks cupcakes you see beside it.
I colored the image with colored pencils and blended them with gamsol, cut around and placed it with foam tape on the card.
My first time using an embossing plate! loving how it looks in real life, never gueesed it could be even better! I finished the card with lace, a piece of ribbon, some buttons and a very old tag.
I wanted to make a gift that wasn´t expensive but at the same time a nice present, so I googled for baby presents and I found this idea to make baby socks cupcakes. I tried to follow some youtube videos but looks like I bought some vey tiny socks and the folding ended very ugly... so I did my own folding trying this and that until I liked how they looked. I took some dollar store flowers and made an embellishment for each of them and finally placed them on silicon cupcakes (also very cheap from the dollar store). Now I have to wrap them nicely and hope the new mother likes them!

On a side and very happy note I´ve been asked to be part of the DT for the Prismas and other medium (POM) challenge at The Outlawz and this is my first creation! this time we are challenging you to use buttons and bows on your creation, it doesn´t have to have an image or be a card, you can play with whatever your inspiration takes you as long as you use some medium different than markers (like copic/promarkers ones, there is an especific challenge for them!).
I´m so excited ot be part of the team and I would like to invite you to join us if you didn´t already, there´s lot of fun going on! you are going to love it there!
