Packed for Baby

Yeah - I still have babies on the brain - probably will for a long time now, what with the new grandson and all.

Today's card is using the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary.  I used a piece of DSP from Just Add Cake.  I had wanted to use Peach Parfait and So Saffron for my colours - so this paper worked out well, and gave me a few more options for colouring in the Packed for Baby image.  And, I'm just loving the little hands and feet from the Baby Prints set!

I'm sort of wishing I had done something to the base to keep it from being just plain paper .....but I'll get over it!  Oh - and do you see that tiny little twinkling above the Baja Breeze Pleated Satin Ribbon - Yeah - I missed a bit of the sticky strip that I used to attach the ribbon - so I added a wee bit of glitter.  I didn't notice it until the card was completely put together.

Anything glittery in your life today?  Thanks for stopping by!

What clever use of the packed for baby stamp and the little foot. When I first saw those I was at a loss as how to use them. Really haven't seen too many either. Your card is great!--Karen H.

I haven't used any of the packed for stamps yet because I'm not sure what to do with them. You done a great job pairing up these 2 baby stamps. Thanks for playing CCMC!

Such a cute baby card! I love how it is not gender specific! Great job on the coloring and I think you are so clever to add the glitter to hide the sticky strip! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

I've been having trouble with those little collage stamps, but I really like how you used it on your card! And the darling baby foot as the focal element (congrats on the grandson!). Thanks so much for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!
