Baby card!

Hi dear friends!
 Sorry for being such a stranger lately; my hubby and I took a couple of days off to "relax". Our little one keeps waking up at 5 in the morning and wouldn't go to sleep till noon. So we've decided someone else could wake up that early for us: his grandma. Therefore, we've landed all by ourselves about 5 hours drive away and kept talking about how we've been abandoning our child:)). When we've finally settled on this idea that "we were good parents" and should have fun together as well, we had to drive back home:) 
Now, I have to catch up blogging. Can't wait to see what wonderful things you've all came up with over the week-end. 
First, I'll show you a baby card I've just made for the Magnolia-licious challenge. I'm a bit late with this but hopefully there are a few more hours before the challenge closes:). So, I went for the baby theme rather than pink and brown, simply because I couldn't find the brown papers I needed, but I'm sure I have lots of them:).
So, this is my card:

 And a side-view:


Recipe:

Stamp- Magnolia - Sleeping Baby Tilda 
Medium; Promarkers
Embellishments: roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace , ribbon from stash, pearls from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, glitter on the wings
Dies; Marianne Design frame, lacey circle nestie for the sentiment.
Sentiment: computer generated

These are the challenges for my card:

Magnolia-licious: pink/brown or baby themed
Sentimental Sundays - sentiment and Pearls & Lace
Gingerloft - Use flowers
Dream Valley Challenges  - New beginnings 
Crafty Pad - Use Ribbon
Corrosive Challenges - Going Green

Hugs, Iulia

Have a great week,

Wow, This is stunning. And ik love the non traditional colors from the papers.
You did a great job. And I recognize the wake up times with little children. When they are older, you get late to bed, waiting for them to come home and wishing they where young again.Haha
Hugs Marianne

Hi Iulia,
LOL Oh I remember how it was when the children were babies and the guilt from leaving them and then oops it's time to go home again!
Your card is really wonderful. Love the bright colours and your beautiful design paper.
That Marianne Die is so delicate and is perfect for the baby!! Look at your lace and the way you have cut the daisy in half to decorate!

Beth said...

Awwwww, what a sweet card! You did a beautiful job on it! Enjoy your time away!

Barb Hardeman said...

Hi Iulia! It's so necessary for you and hubby to have some couple/adult time without your child. Kids never think their abandoned when their parents are rested and ready to take on all the activity! A great parent knows when it's time to take a break. Sounds to me like you're a fabulous mum and dad to take care of yourselves.
Now for this fabulous card! It is totally delightful! Sweet and soft with beautiful papers and gorgeous ribbon and trim! Love the way you arranged the flowers! This is one of my favorite of the 'baby' images. Beautiful work my friend!
Hugs,
Barb

Sandy said...

Good Lord Iulia! Do you know how far I had to scroll down to post this comment!!!!! Oh a honeymoon - I understand those words!!!! So sweet of you to think of grandma - LOL. You will always question the role of parenting - it is the nature of the beast. My youngest is 41 and I still question what kind of a mother I was or am - so goes the lot of motherhood. Now are you telling me you had to turn around and drive back home? You deserve a break Iulia and if a grandma is willing to keep the baby then go for it. I think I am supposed to be commenting on your card - ironic, it is a sleeping baby. Your card is beautiful. Just as pretty as you are!
XO
