Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

I have some great news to share:  I'm joining Classy Cards 'n Such Design Team!  I've had such great fun being a guest designer this month and am honored that Beverly has asked me to stay on.

On to this week's challenge:  Today I want to share with you a baby card I made that didn't use the normal pastel color palette.  But this verse is one I always associate with new precious bundles of joy.  Everything about babies are just about perfect - those beautiful eyes, cute nose, toothless grins, and oh, baby feet!  Yes, they are definitely wonderfully and divinely made.  

For my background, I used the Texture Wave stencil from Classy Cards 'n Such.  I sponged it using Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and Broken China.  I cut a couple of Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly to go behind the window I made with the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  I embossed the verse in white on vellum to place in my frame.  I love the look of vellum and this window is one of the easiest way I've found to use it without worrying that the adhesive is showing.  The 1/8 Scor-tape is perfect for gluing the vellum onto the frame (and anything else detailed). And what's a baby card without a few buttons?

I also used the Sakura Star Dust pen to trace my butterfly and added a pink mini rose bud to the center of the butterfly.
