New baby card

This is a Hampton Art Stamps image, no 1223, 'A Star is Born', which I was sent as a freebie a while back. I kept to a rainbow pastel palette as I wanted a card suitable for either sex, and used gold embossing powder for a touch of sparkle. The watercolouring was actually done with felt pens and a waterbrush, and I added little touches of gold and pale green glitter so as not to overwhelm the delicate image. A quick rummage through my button jar produced the pastel and star buttons, and a similar rummage through my ribbon jar got me the sheer purple and green gingham ribbons. I added some Christmas jingle bells I bought in Lakeland a few years ago just to make it a bit more fun.
