Hello, Baby

I am SOOOO excited to finally have an excuse to make a baby card!  It has been a while and I now have TWO friends who are expecting.  Yay!!!  I just had to get Zoo Babies when it was on special a few weeks ago and decided to make my first baby card for our Anything Goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  Neither mother is going to find out if it is a boy or girl ahead of time, so I thought the colors and Hand Stamped Sentiments would work perfectly for a gender neutral card. I also used this fabulous sketch from retro sketches.

As soon as I saw this sketch, all I could see was doilies, and luckily I have a few left!  I am going to have to get another pack of those suckers...I am running low!

I sure have gotten my use out of the Season Of Style DSP stack. This Crumb Cake sheet is particularly versatile, I think.  I had fun coloring the little lion with the different colors. It's hard to see from my photo, but I did get the Blushing Bride in there for his ears and nose!

  1. I love this DSP stack. It is so verstile! Great card for a baby - how exciting for your friends! I went to a 'Gender Reveal Party' last weekend. The sex of the baby was in an envelope and the parents and all us friends and family found out at the same time. It was really fun! xx

  2. Oh this is just so adorable! I think the lion is very cute and your take on the sketch is perfect. Great card.

  3. so adorable Shana. I love this peach colour with the crumb cake-what a great combo. I have to get some of these ruffled ribbons, I think they make a card really special x

  4. Very sweet card, Shana! Love the doily on the dotty background and the pretty ribbon.

  5. Doilies... Who does not love them?!? I know I do! :) Very cute card, the dotty paper is very fun.

  6. Sweet design Shana. LOVE the polka dot background and your ruffled ribbon accents. The image is so sweet - love the soft colors you've used. Loll xx

  9. Sweet - super sweet - Shana! Love seeing that paper used in a different way. I haven't heard of a gender reveal party - what a fun idea. I like how you colored the lion. Hugs D
