It's Time!!!!

Happy Labor Day Everyone!!!  Hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend.  In light of "Labor Day", I'm dedicating my card to all the new mom's today.  Here's a peek:

Pink base card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
Yellow mat (3 3/4" x 5"); corner punched two corners and ran it through my cuttlebug with the folder divine swirls

I used the New Arrival cricut cartridge on this card. The mommy was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I cut four layers: 1 tan, 1 brown, 1 white and 1 patterned paper. The tan was used for the main figure. The brown was used for the hair.  The white was used for the purse and pants. I used the glitter stack for the patterned paper.

I wrapped white ribbon around the hat to give it a band look.  For the face, I took out my zig pens (blue and red) and lightly gave her a face.  Then I finished it up by swirling some pink chalk to give her face some color.

For her purse, I glue the white on the pattern paper and added a purple rhinestone.  Sorry for this picture not being clear.

Wrapped a wider green ribbon around the card and finished with a knot.  I added a pink button and weaved white DMC floss through the holes and completed it with a bow.  Glued the button down on top of the ribbon knot.
Now for my sentiment.  It is computer generated.  I used the says "It's time" because I don't ever recall saying "I'm in Labor".  So I printed it on some light blue cardstock and cut it with Spellbinders templates "Creative Page Tabs".  Distressed it with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" and added baby blue liquid pearls.  Then I finished it off with more rhinestones in the corners of the main card.
As always, thank you all for stopping by and leaving me comments.  I don't always respond to every one of them.  But, I do want you all to know that I really do appreciate them.  Have a wonderful rest of the holiday day.  ~ Shawn
