Bundle of Joy


Here's a card I made which covers three challenges:  SUO Challenges (welcome, baby); Dynamic Duos color challenge and the sketch challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.




I used a single stamp called Bringing Baby and stamped it in Stazon onto Shimmery White cardstock.  I then lightly colored it using Primrose Petals; Blushing Bride and Smokey Slate markers.  I cut it out using an oval framelit.  The background layer is Primrose Petals Core'dinations, run through with the Needlepoint Border EF and lightly sanded.  The retired Blushing Bride pleated ribbon was stuck down using Sticky Strip but still manages to look crooked LOL.  Some Primrose Petals ribbon is folded behind the stamped image.  A button from Twitterpated and a tiny Baker's twine bow finish the embellishments.  The sentiment comes from the retired set Little Angel.


Thanks for looking.
