Baby Blue


No, we're not talking about the George Strait song.......we're talking about a baby boy card!

The theme for the challenge at Always Playing With Paper is "O Baby" (to create a project for baby). I needed to replenish my stash on baby cards and this was the perfect opportunity. Stop by Always Playing With Paper and see what the wonderful DT has created! This is also another card for the CAS-Tastic challenge (the layout) - see the previous post of the Thanksgiving Day card. This time, I turned the sketch on its side. As I said yesterday, it's just a very nice layout.

The stamp set I used for the image and the sentiment is Teddy and Train from SU. I used my Swiss Dots Embossing folder on White and then some Brocade Blue CS. I colored the little bear with Prisma pencils. Of course (as always) the bow was made using the Bow-Easy. I then added the little pearls. I mean, hey, you can have pearls on a card for a little boy too, right!!

Thanks for stopping by......................
