Crafty Creations #161: Sing a Song...

... of Mother Goose! (That's the librarian in me showing.) This week we are looking for Mother Goose-themed projects at Crafty Creations Challenges. Meljen's Designs, our sponsor this week, supplied some delightful images for the design team. Here's what I came up with: 




I thought this was perfect to use for a new baby card. I printed the entire image on dark blue cardstock, then paper-pieced the cow and moon. I went over the swirls with white gel pen to show up against the dark background. This image is called "Over the Moon" and seemed like the perfect congratulatory sentiment. And yes, I DO have a star stamp that small! It added that extra something that was needed to finish the card. 
Join us at Crafty Creations Challenges for your chance to win four images from Meljen's Designs! 


Supplies: white, blue & yellow cardstock, Recollections blue and yellow gingham patterned paper, Meljen's Designs Over the Moon digital image, Digi Doodle Shop frame 3 digital image, Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies star stamp, Colorbox frost white ink, white gel pen Pin It Now!

EEK! It is so CUTE! Great paper piecing and the swirls look great (good thinking on the gel pen). I love your baby card more than my baby card. :)
