Sweet Pea Stamps Variations Week - July 2013

This week is one of my favourite weeks on Sweet Pea Stamps.  It is Variations Week when the Design Team are given the same image to work with and come up with such varied cards/creations.  It's still amazing to be part of Variations Week now I am on the Design Team.  This month we were given the option of two different images:  Connie Fong's Mother and Baby Boy or Connie Fong's Mother and Baby Girl.  Both are available in either digital format or rubber stamps.
For my card I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, die-cut and inked the edges with a purple chalk ink pad.  I have kept the colour scheme to pink and purple as I chose the Mother Baby Girl option.  The backing papers are all from my stash.  I have used various Marianne Designs dies to mount the image on/use an embellishment.  I have also used a Spellbinders corner gold ie which I won in some candy.  I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, pink lace, heart die-cut stamped with "new baby" sentiment, buttons, brads and some flowers which I have swiped over with some Creative Expression guilding wax (be warned this stuff doesn't half smell.  It made me cough so much!!)
