Hello Baby

I don't make many baby cards because most of my friends are past the "baby-making stage." lol But when I saw this color combination at colourQ I thought it would be perfect for a baby girl card.  I paired it with the sketch at Nacho Average Challenges.
Since I don't make baby cards, my supplies are quite limited, so I pulled out some oldie but goodies, Button Button and Circle Circus. These are two of my favorite sets for making backgrounds. These are two of the few sets I have in wood mount so I can easily stamp and clean them without having to constantly switch blocks.

After I stamped my images I spritzed the whole thing with some homemade Champagne Shimmer Mist. I really wish it showed up in the picture because it is really cool  The piggy's nose is a Vintage Faceted Button, adhered with Crystal Effects so you can't see the adhesive. That stuff is like cement when it dries and great for heavier embellishments like this!
Stamp Sets: Button Buddies, Button Button, Circle Circus, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
