Moon Baby

Our challenge at Die Cut Dreams this week is Babies R Us and Stampin´Sisters in Christ would also like to see your Baby Cards whilst Cute Card Thursday have set the theme of Charms.

The week ahead is "Baby loss awareness week" People whose lives have been touched by the loss of a baby during pregnancy or just after birth are uniting with others across the UK to show their support for the Baby Loss Awareness campaign 2009, which focuses on International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day on October 15th.
On Thursday at 7pm it's the Global Wave of Light. To join in if you have suffered a loss all you need to do is light a candle at 7pm in honour of the memory of your child.

I am so not into baby cards so struggled with this one.I have coloured my image with copics and used glamour dust to give a bit sparkle to the moon. Recycled wire from a wine bottle for my charms as it is lovely and fine to thread the pearls and everything else is from my stash.

Hi Nicola I adore your card the little embellishments are perfect accompaniment to that wonderful image. I have bowed out of these challenges as I have no reason to make baby cards and they would just be sat around but I have certainly enjoyed looking at yours.
