My DT card for challenge 42 over at Forever Friends

 
Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Forever Friends Challenge blog.
our theme for this fortnight is
Something New
we are sponsored by Ribbon Girl
 and we would love you to come over and join in the fun HERE.

As you can see I went down the new baby route and tried this technique for the first time.

Firstly I made two blank cards measuring 5.5 x 5.5 inches. I added some Forever Friends patterned paper on the front of both of them and some flowery patterned paper on the inside, I then cut some more of the patterned paper I used on the front, to size but before sticking to the inside I cut a large oval out of the centre so I could add a dangly bear on each side using invisable thread and added a pink bow just above the ovals.
I hope you can see the dangling bears ok, you might need to enlarge the photo.

I cut the pretty border on the front with a Dizzy Border die from Die-namics and added to the front of each card tucking over the excess onto the back before sticking both cards onto a piece of pink 5.5 x 11 inch card.

I then made a card slightly smaller to go in the centre so your message is hidden when the card is first opened, and decorated it the same as the main card. I cut the images out with circle nesties and matted onto scalloped circles before sticking to the central card and the front of the 2 cards that were joined together, adding a bow just above the image.

I have also added some pretty pink corners cut using a Cheery Lynn corner die on the very front of the card.
