My DT card for Digi Darla's challenge


Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Digi Darla

Our theme for this week is 

so if you have added a button or buttons to one of your cards don't forget to hop on over to the challenge blog HERE to enter your creation and also check out what my fellow DT members have made to inspire you 

Here are the details for my card 
 I have made a few chest of drawer cards in recent weeks but wanted to adapt it to use the lovely baby clothes line image and sentiment so I came up with this bigger card

I made a centre stepper card using pink gingham card leaving a small section on the right so that I could add the clothesline from the left hand side to the right.

The image I have used is called Baby Clothesline and the sentiment is called Baby bundle of joy, both available in the Digi Darla Store 

On the left hand side I added some drawers using pink card, pink spotty paper and some Craftwork Cards card candi for the handles, cutting out a piece at the bottom using a spellbinders label die so that it looks like the dresser has feet.  I then added faux buttons in pearlescent pink cut using a Memory Box scalloped buttons die

For the clothes line I printed the image out and cut as close as I could to the washing line. I then printed the image again on 3 different patterned papers so I could paper piece the little pink outfits.

I have also added pink ribbon and a pink bow to the centre step and the sentiment on the last step which I mat and layered onto pink pearlescent card
