Baby Blocks

Hi and welcome to this week's sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  This week we have a fun sketch for you to try.


For my card this week, I went graphic again and made this Baby Blocks card:


For this card I die cut the letters out of Whisper White cardstock, then adhered the negative letters to colored card using dimensionals.  This card is larger than normal at 3.5" x 8.5" in order to fit the letters.  BTW, given that Valentines is over and I didn't want to use the word "love", I had to think what (appropriate) four-letter word I could use for this card - I actually don't know anyone having a baby LOL.

Thanks for looking.  Have a go at this fun sketch!

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Cardstock:  Whisper White; Lucky Limeade; Island Indigo; Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die; Island Indigo Bakers Twine; Brights Button

Cheers
Karren

Oops - didn't read Narelle's comment first, or I would've tried to be a bit more original with the second sentence, LOL.
