Sweet, Sweet Baby!

Hi Everyone!

Just popping in with a couple of posts tonight.  I hope you all are having a lovely week so far.

Today I took some time to craft with a very special friend and we caught up on a couple of episodes of The Voice.  I don't about you but I love me some Adam Levine!!  ;)  He is most definitely on my "Freebie List".  You remember that episode from Friends right?  That list of celebrities where if you weren't attached...well you know...that's a "sweet, sweet baby!" in a whole other sense!

I thought I would use the colours from this week's Dynamic Duos challenge today as my inspiration.

Two very beautiful colours which to me screamed that a baby card was in order.  

I also wanted to use the sketch from Unscripted Sketches.  As I've said before, I love sketches - they inspire me so much and this blog is awesome!


I decided to flip the sketch on it's side and have the "title" or sentiment on the bottom of the card.  I also decided that I would make the blocks all the same size as it would work much better for the effect of the stamps that I wanted to use.  You will understand in just a few moments...can you wait for it??? ;)

Without any further teasing, here is today's card:

I love those little hands and feet that look like imprints!  And the Sahara Sand is a great colour to soften up the look of printing a babies hands and bitty feet.  For the sentiment, I cut out the label using the Bitty Banners Framelits in Blushing Bride.  I then stamped the "Sweet Baby" sentiment using Soft Suede and fussy cut around the stamped image itself.  I then popped the sentiment up on dimensionals.  It makes a great layered effect.
