Crafty Boots Challenge: New Beginnings!

Hey all. Can you believe it's that time again - another Crafty Boots Challenge - the first one of 2012. Quite suitably the challenge theme is New Beginnings - quite an open ended theme - so here are some ideas: maybe you could do a New Year themed creation - but don't be restricted you could interpret the theme to incoroprate new baby, weddings, even birthdays for a new age/year themes.

So here is my DT offering for this challenge. I have made a card for a dear crafty friend of mine Katie who recently gave birth to twins! They came a bit early and will be hospital for a while but they are doing great and i'm so happy for her. I know she will make a fantastic mummy! So here is the card (if she sees this blogpost she will get a sneak preview as i only popped it in the post today!!):

I used 'Wisteria Wonder' as the card base. The images have been placed on a piece of 'Whisper White' which i wrapped a piece of 'Wisteria Wonder' 'Ruffled Ribbon' before gluing it down. the Congrats sentiment is from the 'Ain't Love Grand' stampset and i have used my 'Stampin' Write Markers' to stamp it so i could stamp each letter a different colour. The prams have been created from '1-3/4" Circles' Punched from 'Bashful Blue' and 'Blushing Bride' card and coordinating 'DSP'. The wheels have been made from '1/2" Circles' punched from 'Wisteria Wonder' card. Before gluing the prams down i punched some small holes using my 'Crop-a-Dile' and pushed through some brads (not Stampin' Up!) Finally i punched out two small '1/2" Circles' from 'Very Vanilla' to create the babies heads and drew on some details using a 'Basic Grey' 'Stampin' Write Marker'.

I hope Katie likes this card - she actually inspired it with one of her swaps she created some time back!! Congratulations once again Katie! Hope you get the little ones back home soon!!

I look forward to seeing all your Crafty Boots challenge creations! Good Luck!
