Bundle of Baby

For today's Limited Supply Challenge. LSC108

Make a gender neutral baby card :) Well that worked out perfectly :) I just watercolored this little guy last night before I went to bed. Either I'm psychic... or I just really wanted to use my new stamp set, you decide ;)

I tried to make the "ground" look like a blanket. At first I stamped it with Flannel Plaid, but since it's on watercolor paper the plaid just didn't take because of the texture, so I played with the watercoloring until I had it pretty close. I'm going to have to try the Flannel Plaid idea on WW sometime, I think it will be neat.

To be honest with you, I HATED Fontastic when I first saw it in the catty. I just couldn't see the what I'd use it for, but then SCS struck again and all those talented artists showed me just how wrong I had been! It's a great background for kid and baby cards!

The little ribbon detail was kinda fun to make. It's just 2 pieces of ribbon, each folded and then stacked on each other, then I poked a little MM saftey pin thru the layers and a cute little embellishment is born!

To finish off the card I took a page out of PineFeather's book and used the craft white to DTP the edges. It softens the card perfectly, just right for a new little baby!
