♥ A Simple Treasures Blog Birthday Celebration Challenge! ♥

I love a good challenge! Especially if it involves doilies, wonderful colors and a vintage shabby feel! And this inspiration photo from Martha Stewart definitely has all three! Debbie from Simple Treasures (and The Shabby Tea Room) has issued a challenge in celebration of her blog's 2nd Birthday! And you could win some of her scrumptious Seam Binding Ribbon, which I used on this card! You have until midnight tonight to enter! Just click HERE!
For my card, I first inked a paper doily with some light blue and pale pink inks and then glittered it up! I adhered it over some Echo Park paper and then added a Fancy Pants Heart from their Lilac House Cards. I dressed it all up with some Martha Stewart punched snowflakes, Melissa Frances Rub-Ons, Crocheted ribbon, Debbie's Seam binding ribbon, glitter and pearls. I hope you like it!

And here is a photo of our 7 1/2 week old son, Santino. He is growing by the second! He has gained 3 lbs already!! He is already 11 lbs 10oz! He is a very happy baby and we thank God everyday for him and our son Antonio! Children are definitely a gift from God! Ok, now back to cleaning, cooking and changing diapers!! Oh, goody!! LOL

Have a wonderful day!!

Hugs.....

Another beautiful card, Melissa! You haven't lost your touch even in between diaper duty and household chores. LOL! Santino is as adorable as his older brother.
