Di's Digi Baby Card

A warm hello to crafty friends and fellow bloggers, and apologies for not posting in agesssss! The cold weather made me want to hibernate, and being that my craft room is a bit chilly, the fire and tv or just about doing anything else was more welcoming these past couple of weeks than attempting to craft in the fridge.

That said, I finished off a card I started just before Christmas for a great friend who I visited last week and a special new arrival called Holly, and this was one of those cards I had so much pleasure in doing.
the digi image is from Di's Digi Downloads, and you can find it here - its called New Beginnings.

Updated to add - this image has been re released in January 2013 and is called Hammock Slumber, just as adorable as ever, and you can find it here

the image was coloured with my favourite H2O paints and I added polar white flower soft to the insides on the flowers. 

the border punching is done with a Martha Stewart punch and the flower in the bottom right hand corner with a cuttlebug die called Asterisks which has asterisks (surprise surprise!) but also nicely shaped rounded flowers in the set which nest together very well.
the leaf punch is a Leone Em one - okay they are pricy but they are are sturdy and are a delight to work with (my next couple of cards WILL have the maidenhair fern one on at least one of them)
here is a closeup- of the colouring

 here are some camera pictures to show the easel dimensions - i need new batteries!!

 oops and nearly forgot, the border inside was embossed with a cuttlebug border embossing folder...
