New Beginnings/New Life

Sorry for the late posting - but I have been on "nanny" duties all day for 7-month old Lillie!  Her Mummy's first day back at work!  Spring is all about new beginnings/new life so we at Make My Monday  this week would like to see your craft work inspired by this.  I decided to opt for the new beginning of a little life ... a newborn baby!

Not only has my own granddaughter inspired this but also the new releases I was kindly provided with by Marianne Designs. They are stunning as the colours are very springlike and there is a vintage feel to them also - so right up my street I must say! 

For Make My Monday I have made a "tri-card" from the Vintage Pastels Paper Bloc and Eline Romantic Nursery Decoupage sheets from Marianne Designs. 

I have purposely not overladen the tri-card with embellishments as I wanted the paper and the decoupage images to be the main focus.  The daisies, star and butterfly have been embossed with white embossing powder.

I have added hand stitching on each panel.....I am pleased with myself how this turned out (it's been a while). On one of the panels I have added a verse - I am sorry but I cannot remember where I saw this is on the net but it sort of just talked to me!

The sun is shining brightly; the birds begin to sing
And everything is ready for the coming of Spring
And then the flowers say softly
"Wake up - we shall be late!"
For Baby's rosy fingers do love the flowers so.

Hope you can join in with my fellow DT friends over at Make My Monday
I am entering my tri-card into the following challenges:-

Always Something Creative - "spring awakenings"

Delicious Doodles - "wonder of life"
