Welcome, Baby {CS35}

Well, its Thursday, and that means its time for another challenge over @ Creative Sketches!  This week it is a sketch that we are working with.  I hope that you all have a chance to play along.  The rules/guidelines are posted on the challenge blog.  

Here is the sketch:

Looks pretty 'user-friendly', doesn't it?  So, take some time, sit at your craft table, and create something wonderful, and link it to the challenge!  You never know, you could be our challenge winner!  To give you a bit of inspiration, this is what I came up with:

A Boy Baby Card:

I used Crumb Cake cardstock as my card base.  I layered a piece of Baja Breeze DSP as my main panel. Yes, its the same piece of paper, just the other side!  How resourceful, huh?  I wanted to tie in the Soft Suede, so I added a thin piece of a scallop trim border to separate the two different patterns of paper.  I added a piece of Baja Breeze seam binding to hide my seam.  Slipped on a silver ribbon slide.  Pretty, and I didn't use a hundred products!  The three stamps are all retired.  The baby onesie is from a hostess set featured in the Occasions Mini catalog earlier this year (A Slice of Life).  The fancy frame is from Sale-a-Bration last year (Vintage Labels), and the sentiment is from a hostess set from the Occasions Mini catalog that just expired (Something to Celebrate).  I used Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, and Pink Pirouette markers to color the onesie.  I added some foam tape behind the two 'tags' to elevate them off the card.  I didn't want it to look too flat.  See, easy peasy!  Enter our sketch challenge, and use colors and products from any company you have on hand.  You don't need to go out and buy new stuff to compete!  Lets see what wonderful things you can create! and share them with us and everyone who stops by!  You just might inspire someone!
