Cute Card Thursday Challenge #1

Our very first challenge has just gone up this morning on our brand new challenge blog

The challenge this week was set by Andrea and it is 'New Beginnings' to celebrate our very first challenge and the start of something very new and exciting!
So, you can make any 'New' type of card maybe New Baby, New Home, New job or perhaps a first birthday or anniversary. Plenty of scope there so come on and join in the fun!
WE have blog candy to be won by one lucky entrant who will be drawn from a hat next week! Good luck!
I made this for a friend who is about to move to a new job!
Please visit the challenge blog to see great examples on this theme from the design team, they have all made fabulous cards!
Supplies: Tools ~ cuttlebug, nestabilities, sewing machine
Cardstock ~ white and brown
DP ~ sorry had this ages from a scrapbook set and don't have any labels
Stamp ~ Magnolia 'Edwin with broom'
Embellishments ~ Sentiment produced on PC, cut out with nestabilities, dog tag from a new pair of boys trousers bought from Next, ribbon from stash

Fab card, Deb, love the sentiment! There's a German equivalent, a near word-for-word translation, and I'm always intrigued when I come across things like that. Oh well... :) Have a great weekend!
