A Very Special Delivery

Hope you are all ok :D
We have a very special challenge this week over at MDUC for our very own Camilla. 
Camilla doesnt know about this so it will be a lovely surprise for her too..:D
Camilla's baby boy is due any day now just like our own Princess Kate, so we are all quite excited for another MDUC baby :D

I think I only have one baby boy Magnolia stamp and wanted to come up with something different..
So as soon as I saw this new Edwin from the Sea Breeze Collection I knew he would fit perfectly in the bath.

I painted him with Distress Reinkers

Papers are Pion
Dies are Doo-Hickey flags and Tildas tag
Also from the Ribbon Girls  I used 100mm Camilla Ivory Flat Lace, Vintage Blue Fluted Edge Sheer Ribbon, Cheesecloth and Astrid Cream Tulip Lace
Thankyou for looking and I hope you come along and join in too

Here is the Summer Breeze Collection 2013

 Tilda I have painted with DI Re-Inkers. Ive used quite a lot of Frantage and Fragments on this card especially for the Sand and Sea to give a little more dimension and texture.
