Baby girl

You will never hear me complain about making baby girl cards! I have probably 4 friends right now who are expecting babies in the next few months. 1 of them knows it's a girl and the others are going to be surprised. So I took this opportunity to make a special baby girl card. This is actually going to be her third girl so I joke that I have the other half of her Brady Bunch!

I'm entering this card into a few challenges, the first being the Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge #51 with a twist. The twist was to pop up a stamped image on the card. I'm also entering it into the Cricut Cardz Challenge #74 which is to make a card for a new baby (PERFECT!!). My card also qualified for the More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday #38 Anything Goes Challenge. Finally I'm including it in the Patches of Pink Link Up Party!

Here is the Peachy Keen sketch I was to go by:

And here is the card I made!

I'm really happy with how it turned out! I love the colors, I love the glitter! I love how girly it is! and it was really simple!

I started by stamping the background of the card. I felt like there was too much empty space behind the frame. I cut the frame from Stretch Your imagination, inked the edges, outlined it with glossy accents and used my Martha Stewart coarse glitter to glitz it up a bit! I also outlined the edges of the baby blocks with glossy accents and added glitter to those. Can you really have too much glitter?! Popped the blocks from the card per the twist in the Peachy Keen Challenge (as shown in the second picture) and added a ribbon to finish it up! I still can't believe how pretty this card turned out!

Background Frame - Stretch Your Imagination
Baby Letters - George and Basic Shapes
Inks - Studio G, Technique Tuesday
Stamps - Rubber Stampede, Scrappy Cat
