MAWTT Challenge 150 - Celebration - NOT Birthday

Morning everyone! Hope you are all well this Thursday - if not then I really hope things improve for you very soon. I hope you can join us for a brand new Challenge over at .....

This week the lovely Kim is our host and has chosen the fab theme of.....

'Celebrate but NOT Birthday'

So we want to see your creations celebrating a special event but NOT a Birthday! It could be New Home, New Baby, Anniversary, Wedding, Engagement etc. It doesn't have to be a card.. it could be a tag, gift box, bag.. etc. as long as it follows the theme. 

I decided to do a 'New Baby' card and have chosen this mega cute image from Pink Gem Designs called appropriately 'Baby Girl in Pram'.  I've coloured it with Promarkers. The gorgeous digital Gingham Papers and 'New Baby' Sentiment are also from Pink Gem designs. I've digitally paper pieced the gingham on the sentiment to match and then coloured the pink bits. Stars are from stash and I've had them for I don't know how many years - think they were free with magazine!!!! so nice to finally use them!
 Coloured with Promarkers:-
Skin: Putty and Sunkissed Pink
Pinks: Rose Pink and Blossom
Greens: Apple and Meadow Green
White: White Gel Pen
Stars: Silver Sakura Metallic Pen

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Crafty Emmas Store which  is sadly closing down soon.  We would like to thank Emma for her generous sponsorship over the years and wish her all the best for the future!!

The fab prize this week is a £10.00 Voucher (excluding P & P) to spend in-store and as there are some huge reductions in the sale -  lots of crafting bargains to be had!!

I hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to take a look at my Teamies gorgeous creations! Lots of variety this week to inspire you... and don't forget to check if you were a winner in last week's challenge!
