Hey Baby!

The girl on our yard finally gave birth to a 9lb baby girl (good grief!) so I was poised to make a card.  Then it actually took two days to make.  When you see it, you'll wonder why, so I'd better explain...  I decided to use lots of pink, put it all in place, with the baby image on top and didn't like it at all.  It was just too, well, pink!  I'd decided to base it on the ribbon I was going to use, and this beautiful ribbon kept falling out of my box (shouting, "Pick me!  Pick me!") and suddenly everything came together:
It turns out the colour is Elegant Eggplant and I've hardly ever used it, but it's perfect for this card.  I know you think you're seeing spots before your eyes, but I felt I had a theme going there for a minute!  The cute image is from LOTV but everything else is SU.  I'm thrilled with the dotty bottom part as I used my Dot Dot Dot stamp with my SAMJ and it lined up perfectly.  I suddenly remembered the Four Frames stamp set has a dotty version, so on it went, with another one cut in half and lined up behind it in Elegant Eggplant.  I'm very pleased with the finished result, hope you like it.
Back soon folks, happy crafting!

  1. Love all the dots, and the colour is superb. It's nice to get away from pink for a girl. I really love the dotty ribbon, I'm not surprised it "called" to you! x x
