Something New @ The Crafty Pad

Good Morning bloggin' buddies!

This morning it's a new challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD  and the theme is
It could be a creation for a new baby, a new home, or perhaps a wedding card, for the start of a new life together.....or something else!
Our sponsor this week is NOT a new sponsor, but is one of our old friends....JOANNA SHEEN with her generous prize of a £10 to spend in her online store.

The DT have used images from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS, and so without further ado, here's my card.

I've made a double diamond card for a new baby, well, actually, 2 new's a card for TWINS! I used the Rocking Horse image which I flipped to make a mirror image, one for each side of the double diamond, and the Twins sentiment. 

I coloured my images with Promarkers and cut them out added a small gem . My DP is a digi from a collection called Pink Boudoir; I thought the pink candy stripes suited the theme of my card.

I coloured the senti with Promarkers and cut it out, then used a scalloped nestie to cut out a mat to layer it onto. I added tiny pearls and gems to bling it up! I edged the card using silver peel-offs and added a pink bow to complete.

The rest of the DT have once again made some amazing cards, so please take a look and leave them some lurve! We always look forward to seeing your creations and visiting your blogs.

As well as a new challenge, we also have 2 new digis released in the's a sneak peek at the oh-so-cute Polly digis:

Polly with Poodle
