Hello Baby


I hadn't made a baby type card is like forever....so thought I'd do that today!


I used some Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango, and Crumb Cake and since it makes a pretty bright card for a little baby, toned it down some by adding the organza and then the satin ribbon. The stamp set is called Choo-Choo from SU. After cutting out the little train cars I popped them up on dimensionals. Even though you can't tell it without clicking to get a bigger picture, I used a SU texturz plate on the background blue. Those texturz plates really give the card a nice look in real life, but don't always show very well in a photo - or maybe I should just say in MY photos!

This is for the challenge over at Friday Mashup. It's a sketch challenge and/or a color challenge. Love this sketch and I know I'll be using is again and again. Check out their challenge today and be inspired by all the wonderful cards from the DT.

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