Weekend Sketch Challenge #15

One of the ladies at our church is expecting her first baby in November... Look at me getting a jump on the card!! :) I'm typically a huge procrastinator, so this is definitely a step in the right direction...

I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #15 for the layout of the card. The original post can be found here. I'm sure you're all already familiar with Beate's sketches, but if not, drop everything and go check them out! :)

I started with a 5 1/4" square card base of Pretty In Pink CS. Then I cut out my other layers: Soft Sky DS 5" square, Groovy Guava DS 4 3/4 x 2 1/2", Certainly Celery DS 2 1/2 x 4".

I went a little flower crazy on this card, so I took a couple of minutes to color them with Groovy Guava and Pretty In Pink ink before working on assembling the card. I love these Pretties Flowers, they dry SO fast! :)

On the Groovy Guava layer, I used my corner rounder to give it a scalloped edge, then used my Crop-a-dile to punch the small holes. I attached all of the DS layers together, then added the ribbon before adhering it all to the card base. I stamped the Fun & Fast Notes baby carriage in Basic Gray and colored it in lightly with Groovy Guava. I used my Sakura Glitter Pen to give a little sparkle to all the dots, but it's hard to see in the photo. I finished the card by stamping my sentiment, and then adding all of the flowers around the outside edge of the image.

Stamps - Fun & Fast Notes, Hugs & Wishes
Ink - Basic Gray, Groovy Guava
Paper - Pretty In Pink, Soft Sky DS, Groovy Guava DS, Certainly Celery DS, Whisper White
Miscellaneous - White Tafetta Ribbon, Pretties Flowers & Pearls, Sakura Glitter Pen
