Happy Monday, everyone!
I have a couple of cards today for The Color Throwdown blog. I needed some baby cards, and these soft palettes were a great jumping off point. I actually set up this post LAST week, thinking I'd get several cards done. Nope, just one. But today, I am adding the current challenge just barely before the link-up deadline. A friend of mine is due to deliver a baby boy by c-section at the end of the month. The fact that her card is already done is either very funny or downright scary! I have been behind All. Stinkin'. Year! Any way, I chose SU's set "Fox and Friends" to make some patterned paper. The sentiment is long-retired "So Very," also from SU. I used soft sky, so saffron, smokey slate, and baked brown sugar inks. A very simple layout with the challenge colors made this a quick card. Some enamel dots and bakers twine wrap it all up.
This is the first card I made for this post. I am working on past challenges from The Color Throwdown, and #427 is from the end of January! I opted for a stamp set that isn't typically my go-to for baby cards: "Vintage Vogue." My nephew and his wife just had a baby girl...this card was NOT made in advance! They actually did not find out the baby's gender until birth. Rare these days, but I love it! I chose blushing bride, pool party, and peaar pizzazz inks. The focal point is made with SU's "Baby Prints," outlined with my pear pizzazz marker. The ribbon is left over from a recent gift (I never throw ribbon away!) and the shimmer enamel dots are from The Paper Studio. I popped up a sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" as the final detail.
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!!
