Babies, babies everywhere!

Wow, everywhere I turn there are new babies! I created this card for a niece that just adopted a sweet new baby boy. It is also combining two SCS challenges: one to honor Cathleen (ctorina) and the other to create a frame on your card.

I stamped the Rubbernecker image onto vanilla cardstock using Vintage Photo distress ink and then coloring with Copic markers - B21, E11, and E15. This was cut with Spellbinders circle nestabilities. The round frame was created by using two sizes of the nesties together. I colored it with my Copic marker to get it to match just right. The card base is vanilla, but I colored a border around the edge with my blue marker and then added a stripe of the dark suntan. The plaid paper is created with the markers as well. I colored the word JOY on a sentiment stamp with a marker, so I would only get that word and stamped it. That panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The mat for that is cut with Spellbinders scalloped rectangle and then colored iwth the marker to match. I added a button tied with embroidery floss as the finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
