Turn a boy into a girl

It's been quite a busy week on this blog so far and it's not over yet. Today I have my Frosted Designs DT card and a new image that is in fact a boy image...but I turned it into a girl, just to show the stamp is versatile.

So, at Frosted Designs, the challenge is 'DREAM'.
I had lots of ideas about making a dream card...but when the stamp 'Baby Blake' popped through my letterbox with this sentiment, the card was already made (in my head). What is more dream-y than a baby?

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Sketch n Stash - the sketch and I used my new stamps and punch around the page punch
Stamptacular - Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice
MelJens challenge 2 - Let's see some girly colours
Rosie D's Challenge - Blessings (babies are a blessing)

I made the Baby Blake image girly by colouring it in pink and adding some gathered lace for a bonnet. This is a versatile stamp. I've coloured it up in several colours now (pink, blue, lemon, pastel green) so I can have a baby card at hand ready for when they are needed at short notice.

I also love the sentiment stamp. That just sums up what the birth of a baby is all about.

Please take a look at the dream-y creations that the other frosted design girls have put together; they are fantastic!

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
