Bathtime Baby

I hope you've all recovered from your Jubilee celebrations last weekend and, for those at work this week hope you've enjoyed the short week.

We had a fantastic street party on Monday with all the neighbours bringing food and drink and a couple of volunteers struck up the BBQ's.  We had bunting between the houses and flags flying high.  The weather was really kind to us with only a few showers, but we had put up a couple of gazebo's to be on the safe side, so took refuge when the showers came along!

This week at A Gem of A Challenge we've got another challenge for you and it's my first one as part of their DT!  It's Christine's turn to host the challenge and she's given us this brilliant sketch to work with:

I've been a bit of a rebel with my first card as I've spun the sketch around a bit, but I have used all the elements!!  Maybe this will be my first and last challenge with the Pink Gem girlies - tee hee.  I've used two different Pink Gem images and one of their sentiments as well (details below), isn't she a cutie?  You can see all of the fab images available by clicking on the Pink Gem Designs blinkie below.

Here's my card:

Materials used:
Stamp - bathtime baby
Stamp - baby set
Coloured with promarkers
Sentiment - a special delivery
Scalloped edge card blank
Striped backing paper - First Edition - spring drop
Edged with distress ink - spun sugar
Faux stitching - Marvy lePlume pen - cherry
Backing paper - Dovecraft - back to basics III
Edged with distress ink - tumbled glass
