My Craft Spot Challenge # 8: Congratulations!


It's Design Team Day over at My Craft Spot. This weeks challenge #8 is Congratulations. My nephews wife is expecting their first baby so I decided to make a card for them. I used Bo Bunny paper and My Craft Spot Sentiments inside and out stamps set #2 which I totally love because you can then finish the inside of your card off within seconds! I used New Arrivals and cut the pregnant lady at 4 inches.



For the card base I used my gypsy and welded two circles together from George and Basic shapes cutting them at 7 1/4 inches.The top layer of the card is from Mini Monograms cut at 6.75. I love this cut because then I was then able to run some pretty Spring Time Moss Crinkled Ribbon around the card and tie a pretty bow. ( which can be purchased over at My Craft Spot )



The happy couple do not know the sex of the baby yet, so I used Doodlecharms to cute these darling little faces at 2 inches and then finished them off with PKS. All edges were chalked and finished by using my faithful glitter pens. I hope you enjoyed todays card and will head over to My Craft Spot and see what the other great Design Team members came up with and then join in the fun and have a chance to win another awesome gift from My Crafy Spot!


I love when I make a card that I also can enter into some of my favorite challenges! The first challenge is Whimsical Wednesday: Take Shape.
Next is: My Creative Time!
for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge.

use the colour blue and Cricuts Doodlecharm Cartridge.
