One image, 2 cards

I'm so excited as I found out today that I have been chosen as the winner of the Pollycraft challenge and the prize is to be guest DT for the next 2 challenges.

This image is my very favourite baby image and as I don't have any baby cards in stock I decided to make a pink and a blue. I used faux stitching around the images, something I don't do often enough. The corners are Sizzix and the I used my MS heart punch on the pink one. The blue flowers are punched with a white ribbon and pearl flower added and the pink one is a punched flower with a Prima flower and flower brad. The gorgeous sentiments are digi tickets from Alissa Designs, edged with promarkers.

Now for the 10 challenges:
Crafts 4 eternity sketch, blue and white, stitching (real or faux)
Cute card Thursday Sketch (used for the pink card)
By the cute and girly New
The Craft Garden New
One Stop Craft Something beginning with B and a DT call (mine is B for baby of course)
Cupcake Baby
Cute Daisy May Love
Incy Wincy Bling it Up (the blue card)
Sophisticat Fancy borders
Papertake New beginnings
