New Beginnings


It's time for a new Twisted Tuesday Challenge!

December 24 - January 6

New Beginnings

Theme: Show us something crafty that is new to you - either received or bought

Twist: Make the theme of your creation something new 
or the beginning of something 
(baby, car, house, beginning of a race, etc.)



I needed a new baby card for a baby shower I'm attending soon, so I decided to make a new baby card.




The striped Designer paper is new. It's a paper pad that I bought it less than a week ago - DCWV Stack #8.

It doesn't show up well in the photo, but the "saddle" on the horse is actually paper-pieced. It's the same speckled pink paper that's found on the bottom of the card.



There's also a treasure on this card. Remember my treasure hunts? I go to yard sales and thrift stores and purchase inexpensive items that are not intended for card-making and use them on a card.


I purchased a bag of baby-themed items:



Baby rattles Pacifiers Diaper Pins 

Cost: 50 cents





Here's the inside of my card:




Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you'll participate in the Twisted Tuesday New Beginnings Challenge!
