Sweet Baby ~ Xtra Special at ABC Challenges

Morning Everyone!
Hope you all had a great weekend.

I have a new DT card to share with you today.
When I guest designed at ABC Challenge last month,
Nikki invited me to join the Designer Team. I was happy to accept
the offer as I always enjoy their challenges.

Today is the 15th of October which means we have a brand new challenge.
The theme is X for Extra Special, sponsored by The Paper Shelter.

For my DT creation, I made a tag card using Sweet Dreams digi image.
I chose this image as it is so adorable and a baby card always comes in handy.

The image was printed on 90lb water color paper and colored with Distress Ink pads.
I cut out the image using Spellbinder Standard Circle dies.

I created my own templates for the tag. 
If you like a copy of the templates, just leave me a comment or e-mail me.
Other dies used are Spellbinders, Memory Box and Stampin'Up.
Sentiment and DP are also Stampin'Up.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
13mm Olivia white cluny lace, 15mm Elizabeth white cluny lace,
30mm Zig Zag white cotton lace, dusky blue button twine,
blue tiny Ric Rac lace, white vintage seam binding ribbon,
white Gutterman top stitching thread, WOC white blossom flower.

Hope you enjoy this visit. You can find more DT inspirations at
ABC Challenge. We would love it if you can join in the fun.

First of all - congrats on your new DT position! You totally deserve it! :D

Your tag turned out beautifully!!! It's so darn cute! Can't really say anything else except "wow"! I was wondering if it would be possible coloring printed images with distress inks. Now I see that obviously it is. ;) Thank you for sharing this info!

And you created this card shape yourself?! Girl, you are amazing! It's veeeeery beautiful! If you don't mind sharing it, can you please send it to me? I think you already have my e-mail. ;)
