Soft Subtles For Baby / Combo Challenge

I had a little time left today to make one more card. I combined two challenges for this one. The first challenge comes from the Color Throwdown Blog. The colors we were challenged to use are the SU colors, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, and Regal Rose.


In addition to the color challenge, I also used today's sketch challenge at SCS. It is SC218 and here is the sketch...




So here is the card I came up with after combining these two challenges...


Unfortunately, the way it photographed has made the card appear more orange than it is. In person, the pink is definitely more dominant! The DP used is the DCWV Baby Girl Nursery collection. The CS is from SU and Georgi Pacific. The stamp is from the Little Hellos SU set. The button brads are MM, and I used the fiskars border punch under the ribbon that came from Michael's. The image was colored with Copics. I popped the stamped image up with pop dots for added dimension.

I haven't really made many baby cards so far. But something tells me that I will get an opportunity to make many more since I have found out that my neice Lindsay is expecting! I have volunteered myself to make her shower invitations and favors that we will need! That will be a lot of fun!
Have a great night and may your bucket overflow with sweet dreams!
