Crafty Ribbons Blog Hop & Challenge #10 | New Beginnings!!!

If you are looking for my Weekly Challenge post for Delightful Challenges, click here.
Wow, can you believe Christmas is over and we are into January which means it’s time for the sales and Crafty Ribbons started their mega sale on the 3rd January where there are lots of fabulous ribbons at fantastic prices so to celebrate we’re having a blog hop with lots of prizes available. We also have a new challenge this time, Gina is hosting.....
New Beginnings 
[new baby, new job, new life]

We'll draw a random winner for both the blog hop and challenge and we’ll have the top 3 as usual. You can get all the details and lots more ideas from the Design Team over at the main site. I am sharing with you today a Welcome Little One card for the birth of a baby girl. 
I chose this darling girl bear grosgrain with the pink bows and flowers to accent my hybrid card. The card features new papers from AJs Digi Shoppe. I created a layout with small squares of each digital paper on screen and then matted it with a white square and a Pink Rectangle to give the impression of paper piecing. I then also created a separate block with my sentiment that once printed could be attached with foam squares to give the layered effect. 

I finished my card by attaching the ribbon straight across the front with glue. I then created a simple two loop bow being sure to twist the printed grosgrain so that the image stayed on top. I attached the bow with Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue and adhered the entire card front to the card base. Thank you for looking!
