Guest Designer Challenge at Doodle Palace

Hi all, Oh boy can't tell you how excited I am, here is what I created for my Guest Designer Post at Doodle Palace this week. This is my First Easel Card placed on top of my first four drawer box, also new for me Yes my FIRST GT position!! Oh perhaps I mentioned that LOL! So I thought NEW was appropriate for the challenge, you can also use a NEW technique, use something NEW or NEW born baby theme, entirely up to you, I have used the USS Ark Digi Image created by Dee, it is coloured using my touchmarkers/copics, I paper toled the duck, giraffe and sheep, not too clear in the photo but the heart dsp is behind the giraffe dsp, so there is a row of hearts all round.
I have stitched around the edges, embellishments, flowers, flower brads are from my stash. The rhinestone brads and ribbon are Stampin Up. I found a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers by Beate Johns, then discovered this talented lady Kirsten for the four drawer box, not to blow my own trumpet but fairly pleased with how this turned out, not easy when not using purple LOL! Just lately everything has been Pink. Our friends daughter is expecting a baby any day now, so hopefully I have guessed right or I shall be back to making a blue card LOL.
