Challenge 125 Crafty Cardmakers & more - Spring has sprung

Marlene is hosting for us today and would like to see your Spring themed creations. So that could be a new life (baby) either animal or human, spring flowers, soft spring colours etc.

 I've gone for the new baby - especially since for the first time in ages I got the opportunity to do a pink card!  

I used my favourite Presscut stepper card die, a Sweet Dixie pram and rattle die and some card and embellishments from my stash. 

I love this stepper card die - it's just so versatile!  Also, it includes the dies to add the decorative layers.  I kept this card comparatively simple, just using a plain pink card from my stash (it has a linen texture) as the base layer.

I cut the pram and rattle out of centura pearl card, cut with great ease using my cut n boss machine.  It cut very well, with just one pass.  I used some candi to highlight the wheels of the pram, and the bar across the bottom of the card, to which I added the baby's name. 

I used a small best wishes sentiment from my stash, and finally, added a button and bow, which I stuck on with my hot glue gun.
