For Baby

Today I have a cute baby card I designed for a couple of online challenges.  Friday Mashup's challenge this week is to create a baby card using Pool Party, Real Red, So Saffron and a neutral.  Hand Stamped Sentiments has a great sketch challenge that worked just perfectly for what I had in mind.  Check them out:
 Here is the sketch challenge:

And here is my take on BOTH challenges:

Baby card for FM99 and HSS154 featuring the Two by Two stamp

Can you believe I've had this stamp for months and this is the first time I've inked it up?!?  I know, I should be ashamed of myself!  I knew as soon as I saw the Friday Mash-up challenge that I wanted to use this stamp for it.   The DSP I used came from two different packs:  Sent With Love (132182) and Storytime (126907).  I also used some Core'dinations for the background, embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF and sanded it lightly to bring out the lighter shade.  I used Crumb Cake as my neutral choice which I incorporated in the 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon as per the sketch.  I love the way this turned out...I will most certainly be making better use of this stamp in the future!
