A Baby Card — PP 133

It’s time for a CAS challenge at the Paper Players this week.  Anne Marie has chosen a fun one.

I was afraid I was going to be in a bit of trouble with this challenge, as I don’t own a single baby-themed stamp set.  I know — it’s shocking, especially when one considers how many stamp sets I have. :)  But fortunately, there was a baby themed sentiment in the Ciao, Baby! set (misleading name — this is the only “baby” stamp in the set).

Oh, Baby -- PP133

I know this is an unusual color combination for a baby card, but I love these colors together.  I got the combo from the Color Coach (love that thing).  Here’s a closer view of the smashed bottle cap:

  8. Awesome baby cards do not have to made with baby-themed stamp sets and you have totally showcased that fact beautifully! I love the color combo and the fab layers. The bottlecap adds the perfect detail. You rocked it, Amy! :)
