Mo's Digital Pencil Monochromatic or 3D Project Challenge

My sweet Niece Natalie gave birth to her second daughter in January.  Little Sophia is being baptized this weekend and I made this card to send her.  I love Mo's sweet little babies, but this is the first time I have had the opportunity to use one.  Natalie and her girls are all prissy girly girls.  Poor Daddy Mike doesn't stand a chance in his household!  But he smiles all the time, so he must not mind getting all that sweet sugar from his girls.

I colored the digi with soft pink Copics and cut it out.  I attached it to a peach scalloped circle I cut out with myNestabilitie.  The flowers are all from Recollections.  Card stock is SU and DP is from my stash and my friend Jeni's stash.  The green ribbon is from PaperTreyInk and the peach ribbon is from Martha Stewart.  The border punch is a MS one too.  I used a doily (Wilton) and the inside sentiment is a SU one too.

Basically I cut and pieced the paper, sanded the edges and ink distressed the project .   I cut the little chicken out of the same piece of paper as the inside birth announcement.  It is popped up with a 3D glue dot. I have found that using a hot glue gun works best with the flowers.  And for a little Grehn Girly bling, I used Diamond Stickles for the bracelet.

The accordion pattern is one my friend Jeni taught us at our Inky Digits Stamp Club Tuesday night.  She found the pattern here.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did making it.  I was afraid it was too fru fru, but my coworkers loved it so it will stay fru fru!
