Welcome Little One

I made this card for a very special lady who is being given a baby shower for her first little girl. I'm also going to enter this into the Pretty in Pink challenge on Crazy 4 Challenges blog. My image is from Flourishes "Rock-a-Bye-Baby" with a paper-pieced hat on the moon and sleeper on the baby. It is colored with Copics and cut out with a Labels Six Nestie. The onesie is from SU's "By Ones and by Twos" and the sentiment from SU's! "Full of Life". The border at the bottom is Spellbinder's Lattice Borders. I added a few Kaiser "Rose" half pearls. The papers are all SU!
Thanks for stopping by.

Quick Post with Link for Tutorial

Some of you have mentioned wanting to learn the technique for using a Nestie where the image extends outside of the Nestie shape. I learned this technique at Rachel Jakes' blog here , but I have one suggestion to make. In her sixth picture down she shows making a light pencil mark where you'll cut to on the outside of the Nestie frame. However, you need to make the mark lightly on the inside of the frame. You'll see in her next picture that she actually cuts up to that point. That way you can gently slide the Nestie die up to where it needs to go. I tend to make light pencil marks here and there to make sure I line it up correctly once I put the Nestie back into place after cutting my image to where it needs to be cut. Sounds confusing, but the pictures will all make sense. Let me know if you have any problems.
