It's Raining, Boys

lol Crazy how easy it is to come up with a masculine card when you actually try!  This is my third in a row!  It does help when you have a few challenges to help you along. :) I used the baby theme from Stampin' Royalty along with the color scheme at Dynamic Duos and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
Now that we know which Stampin' Up! colors will be retiring, I am glad to see some of them used in the challenges!  Bashful Blue was one of my favorite blues at one time.  It is kind of sad to see it go since it is a true powder blue, which is perfect for baby boy cards. Oh well, out with the old, in with the new! :)
In less than 10 days we will know what stamps will be on the retiring list. I am praying that Hello Doily is not one of them! I am still mourning the loss of my beloved Medallion (which would have been PERFECT on this baby boy card!) and cannot deal with the loss of another background stamp. :) 
Stamp Sets: Hello Doily, Perfectly Penned, Rain or Shine
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla
Ink: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie
Tools: Ovals Collection Framelits, Hole Punch
Accessories: Brights Collection Brads, Dimensionals


  1. It's so nice to see Bashful Blue in all it's glory! It is the perfect blue for baby cards and looks equally fantastic paired with Pumpkin Pie on your pretty card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. This card is totally beautiful Shana! I love how you've stamp Hello Doily on your DSP and the colours you've used are fabulous! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
