Craft for the Craic's May Challenge

Hello and welcome :) Hope you are enjoying your Friday, wherever you are :) Today the new challenge for Craft for the Craic goes live, and the theme this month is 'Something for a baby'.

At the beginning of last month, my niece Anna was born. I made this for her, and that in time she could put it up in her bedroom.

I used a combination of papers, tore them and stuck them onto some cream board at the back. It created a patchwork affect. Then I punched the elephant paper into the circle, inked it and stuck it down in the middle. Using two different tones of vellum, I created an area for Anna's name to go. I cut out Anna's name with the same board as per the base (although it is rather hard to see, it is so well covered ;) ) I sewed some pink thread up each side, and stuck down a serious of buttons, gems and other bling.

I created this flower with some quilled paper and a flower embellishment.

My aim is to make Anna's older sister, a similar, but not so 'babyish' one, so in years to come when they are sharing a bedroom, it will be fair!! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hoped you like my creation. Why not pop over to Craft for the Craic and join in, in the challenge?
I hope to enter a few challenges.

Have a brilliant weekend, in Ireland we have a long weekend! Woohoo!!
Happy Crafting,
