Welcome Baby !!

Hi friends,
So, I am back again to share my inspiration for this fortnight's challenge at Lulupu- Kids play.  I have gone with a new born baby card and kept my sentiment general so that this card would work both for a baby girl or a baby boy.

I have created a layered, embossed card on a kraft color base and used some pretty gold glitter tape to add that bit of shine to my project. The leaves are cut from that glitter tape. What I did was, I adhered the tape on a plain white cardstock and then ran it through my Big Shot with the leaf die. Worked like magic :D

A close-up of the flower clicked in natural daylight. Looks gorgeous in real life!

I have dry embossed the side panel of the card on the right side and sponged in white pigment ink over it to highlight the embossed design and on the left side, I have stuck a DCWV dotted pattern paper and die-cut the flower using watercolor paper and colored it with Peacock Feathers Distress ink by heavily spraying it with water. Even the side die-cut lace has been colored using Peacock Feathers Distress ink and I've created an ombre effect on the lace.
The baby pram is stamped, die-cut and the sentiment has been heat-embossed using Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder.

I'm entering this card in Virgina's View Challenge #9- Metallic. I have used gold embossing powder and glitter tape. Hope this qualifies!

Also, my card has been inspired by this time's Fusion challenge graphic picture. Love the ombre color.
