Tuesday Trigger Lullaby

I was itching to get inky today - it has been way too long since I had the chance - and Cath's Tuesday Trigger was just the inspiration I needed. I love this soft, sweet quilt; it is perfect for a newborn baby boy. So I took my inspiration from the ragged edges, the quilt squares and the colors and produced this little card:
I got a lot of use out of my Tim Holtz distressing tool on this card! I also pulled out a scrap of Dear Lizzy fabric paper - in this case, I actually peeled the fabric from the sticker backing so I could fray the edges a bit. I think I will do that again, I liked how it came out! The image is from Rubber Soul stamp set and the sentiment is from a Stamps of Life set. I added a little Copic Spica clear glitter to the heart on the bib, but it was impossible to capture in the photograph. The final card measures 4.25 inches square.
Stamps: Baby -Rubber Soul; Banners4All, Stamps of Life
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copic markers
Paper: SU Basic gray, neenah classic crest solar white, Echo Park Be Mine, American Crafts Dear Lizzy fabric paper
Accessories: ribbon, button, twine, clear spica pen, distressing tool
