TLC140 and a Baby Card

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! It was quite nice here all weekend and we are enjoying it while it lasts! I still need to get out and clean up my hedge out front....it's such a trash collector! LOL
This card below is for todays Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS. It was cracked glass....such a pretty technique!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Stem Silhouettes
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, WW and Basic Grey Figgy Pudding DP
Inks: Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, VersaMark
Accessories: Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon, Glassy Glaze Enamel
One of the ladies at work became a Grandmother again last week. We wanted to give her a card so this is what I made for her. I had some Basic Grey Oh! Boy left. I combined that with the elephant stamp from the Wild About You set. Also used the Circle of Friendship for the sentiment. Wish I had known the baby boy's name so I could have personalized it with a letter or something.

That cracked glass card is really nice - it looks Oriental in a way....really nice.

Cute baby card - I have that little elephant on something you sent me - the Wild About You - or whatever it's called is really fun.
