Helena's inspiration to me

This card I have made is for a friend at work who's Grand Daughter wasn't suppose to be born until May so I have had to make it earlier than expected or rather late now if that makes sense, the reason behind the Tiltle is because my friend Helena takes Photo's & has a lot of small baby images you really must go visit her they are gorgeous, I hope she doesn't mind me shouting about how clever she is as she is such a humble soul & I'm hoping she will be pleased with this take on her work. I made a card already but found out my daughter knew the new mum so had to change the image I used the new Sugar Nellie Bambino image & thought it needed soft stuff hence the Inspireation.

I used Marianne butterfly that I was given
Xcut small petal & fringe Dies (flowers in the centre & small circles the waste from the flowers)
Nesties for the seniments & base for image
Sizzix basket
Lace, card & feathers from my stash.

  6. Hi Janet, thanks for the lovely comments on my blog! Love this card! And thanks for the lovely mention in your post! On the Whiff of Joy inspirational blog there is a tutorial on how to do it, they use a WOJ die, but I found out that you can pretty much use what ever punch or boarder die that you have, just takes a little thinking. Here is the link for you
