Silhouettes over pink ink

I was having a play with inks at the last crop.  The first card has an inked-through-aperture background, whilst the second has a stamped background splotchy splat.  Both were then overstamped with a silhouette image.

The mini stars and tree are from Lavinia, the flowers from Nellie Snellen, the splat and mini bubbles from SU, the sentiments from Stamping all Day and SU.  I matted with silver mirri rather than trying to match the pink, it looks quite elegant :-)

New baby cards

Cast your minds back.... early last year I had to make a last minute engagement card at the request of DH.  The last minute wedding card request followed some time later.  And now ...... tah-dah! ...... the new baby card!  I was prepared for this one and made some variations on pink and blue, at the last-but-one crop :-)  Today we heard that a baby boy has arrived, so congrats to the proud new parents and DH is tasked with writing - and posting! - a blue one.

I made four of each, mixing and matching two embossed backgrounds and two sentiment stamps.  Stamps are from Woodware and SU, the die is from Tonic.
So I am well prepared for any more new arrivals :-)
