Heaven Sent

I purchased a gift for a friend who recently had her second baby boy! The romper and frame were the inspiration for my card and frame embellishment. I mimicked the romper material using my white Inkssentials opaque pen on gray cardstock. Random lines along my ruler edge, so no measuring! The star reaches beyond the card to create a tent topper card. A photo of card with the frame. The frame embellishment is the very same stamping and paper as used on the card star. Stitching on the card helps to reflect the fabric feel. Heaven Sent label is cut using Tags 5 die from Spellbinders. SU circle punches and Marvy Uchida yellow scallop circle punch along with brads, adhesive pearls, and button add to the card's embellishments and design elements.
A darling romper...the idea springboard for the card and tag message. I loves the star theme for a little boy and when I saw the star frame along with this outfit, I knew I would make a card to complete the set for gift giving!
Heaven Sent was stamped with my 50pt and 25pt Brayton font. You have heard me say it many times, and here I go again! The reason I love JustRite, is I can PERSONALIZE or spell anything I need to accompany my stamping creations. And the ability to combine fonts, along with JustRite sets is a huge plus too!
An example of this, is how I used this center, from the new Friendship Set on my 3 1/4" round wooden stamper for the star center. Perfect isn't it? Children are one of Life's most precious gifts, certainly Heaven Sent! Memento London Fog ink was used for all stamping. Papertreyink white and blue cardstock along with SU yellow and grey are the papers utilized.
JustRite is gearing up for their July 16 BLOG HOP! The team is busy creating some terrific ideas, Just for you! I am so excited to show you what I have been up to! For me it is definitely treat time again! And all those goodies are trying to find out witch way to go! Hmmm...it's going to be a tricky blog hop, for sure!
Take good care! I am so appreciative that you stopped in today! Hope the summer sun is shining where you are!
Have a great weekend, friends!

This is so adorable. Love your "lined" paper to match the rompers. Very creative, as all of your things are. Thanks.
