Sweet Baby Card

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog where I love to share my handmade cards. Today I made this Sweet Baby Card for a cousin and his wife who are expecting their first baby. They are having a girl so I'm sure at this point they are on Pink overload! So, I decided to use Purple and Green to mix things up a bit. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I hope they love it too.

The image is called Giraffe Heart 2 by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and it was colored with Copic markers. After coloring the image I used a Lil' Inkers stitched rectangle die to cut it out. For the layout I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday. Selecting the right papers gave me a little challenge, but if you do enough digging eventually you find something that works. The purple gingham card base is from Current and it's larger measuring 5" x 7". Then a layer of Watercolor Dots by Recollections was added after it was matted to white cardstock. I found the green patterned paper from the Spring paper stack by American Crafts and the purple was found in my scrap bin. A little purple twine from The Twinery was added along with three silver puffy heart stickers from Freckled Fawn. The last detail was adding the Sweet Baby sentiment from the retired Itty Bitty Banners stamp set by Stampin' Up!

This Sweet Baby Card is entered into the following challenges:
