Something New

I'm so excited I can't sleep.  I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve.  Earlier tonight I opened my e-mail to find a note that told me I was accepted as a Design Team member for Shirley's 2 Girls.  I'm positively giddy. 
Awhile ago S2G went digi but I didn't have the ability to print so all I could do was drool over the new images, this was particularly frustrating when they "went to France", those Paris images are totally adorable.  Well, now that I've got a printer I can pick up some of the images I coveted.
Since I can't sleep I decided to make a card for this week's challenge which is Brides and Babies, the twist is to use something new.  Being twisted is not a problem for me, using something new is pretty easy too.  I picked the twine used to tie the buttons ad charm to the ribbon.  The charm is pretty new too.  If you're having trouble seeing it, it's a set of blocks with the letters B A B Y on them.  Try clicking on the picture, it'll be enlarged and you should have a better view. 
I love the twine, it reminds me of the stuff they used at the bakery when I was a kid, nowadays they use tape, which is fast and easy for the bakery workers but it does not have much visual appeal. 
So here's the deets:
Stamp - Shirley's 2 Girls "Stork Delivery"
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Faded Jeans
Paper - Stampin' Up Dusty Durango card stock; K & Co. Itsy Bitsy dp
Miscellaneous - copics, buttons, twine, charm, Pebbles orange candy dots
Here's the challenges:
Shirley's 2 Girls - Brides and Babies #62 - twist Something New
Sweet Sunday  #75 - sketch
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again.  Please click on the pink ribbon before you to, it's good for everyone.
