613 Avenue Create - January 2024 - Anything Goes with optional twist of New Beginnings

Happy New Years Everyone. 

It is time for our first challenge for 2024 at 613 Avenue Create.  The theme as always is anything goes and the optional twist theme this month is New Beginnings. 

I chose to make shower girl baby card for this challenge.

I used chipboard for the base of the card which I covered with some designer paper from my stash. The pattern for the card  I have had for along time and have modified it several times. 

Front of  Card 

Once I had the paper attached to the chipboard I preceded to decorate the card creating a dress.  I added a glitter sticker, a couple of buttons and some dotted details.

I also edged the paper using Walnut Distress ink.
