Hip Hip Hooray!! (SACC59)

This week All Dressed Up is generously sponsoring our challenge.

The winner will receive 2 digital images. Wow!!

About All Dressed Up
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors. I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.
We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

Thank you so much for your support, Wendy!

I created this card for ***I can't tell*** who is going to be a big sister! Hip-hip-hooray!! 

This image is a FREEBIE over on the All Dressed Up blog. They are really so generous and their images are just adorable!! I am having such a good time playing with them.

I colored up my image with my Copic markers. All the paper is from the Hip Hip Hooray paper pad by American Crafts. The card base is Neenah Desert Storm and the mats are Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana (which match the paper perfectly). I used my Nestabilities circle and scallop dies for the main image and matting, various sized punches for the circles, Stampin' Up punches for the word window and banner, and Martha Stewart punches for the butterflies. The embroidery thread is also Martha Stewart (from a hundred years ago). 

For the inside, I used another image and the same paper and matting. This card measures 5 by 5.25 inches; almost square. :) I also made an envelope but forgot to get a picture of it. Maybe I'll add pictures of that later. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
