Penny Black and More - Midmonth Card

This month is flying by and it's already time to share my mid-month card for the Penny Black and More challenge. This month it's all about "New Beginnings", please do come join us if you you haven't already, and don't forget you can enter up to 3 creations for more chances to win one of the great prizes we're giving away this month!

My "New Beginning" this time is a New Bundle of Joy!
Designer Paper from stash // Sentiment by Whimsy Stamps (retired)

An easy to make card, I stamped the image from the Penny Black set Buddy and Duck with Memento ink and colored with copic markers. Cut out and framed it with dies from Nestabilities and I used a simple sketch. A little button and some white twine (from Stampin Up) finishes off the card. I also used a Wink of Stella glitter brush on all the hearts. 
I also wanted to make baby boy version of this card, but ran out of time. Maybe I'll have some time this weekend :-)

Sharing with these challenges:
Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute CAS
Paper Minutes - Peekaboo
Shopping Our Stash  Hearts
Stinkin' Inkers -  It's News to Me (New Baby)
Fab 'n' Funky - For a Child
Crafty Friends Challenge  - New Beginnings (week1)
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes with PB or optional Something New
As You Like It Challenge - Pearls or Buttons (It's buttons for me. I love that I can add twine and tie a bow with buttons, and with buttons I don't have to worry as much about it falling off too easily like I do when using pearls.)

And that is all I have for today! Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great Sunday!
