Pink Baby

I was looking at a few of my favorite crafting challenge sites earlier this week.  And well, one challenge site that I always look at, but don't always participate in, is celebrating their 200th post!  I think that is great! and I wish them continued success and I hope the next 200 challenges are more fun, more exciting, and have more and more participants!
Just Us GirlS challenge site, have a sketch this week.  All you have to do, is use the sketch, and enter!  


here is what I created:


Every now and then, I really need to play along in a challenge that doesn't require a specific manufacturer.  So, in this challenge, I used a little bit of products from quite a few different favorite manufacturers.
I started with crumb cake cardstock as my card base.  I just love this heavy weight card stock.  The two pink pattern papers are from Teresa Collins, Sweet Afternoon collection.  I just love this pretty, soft, pink with a variety of collage images.  I wanted to provide a break to the mirage of pink patterns and images.  So, I added a strip of polka dot pattern paper from Authentique, Grace collection.  
I matted the polka dot pattern paper with pink pirouette cardstock and machine stitched a simple border.  I did a zig zag machine stitch to adhere the seam binding to the polka dot pattern paper.  I wrapped some brown bakers twine around this panel.  I adhered a multi-loop bow, with a bakers twine tied button to the center of the bow.  I included a tiny tag, stamped with 'SWEET', in baked brown sugar classic ink.
I matted the variety text pink text pattern paper with crumb cake card stock, and machine stitched a simple border.  I inked a stork image with soft suede classic ink, and stamped it onto the pink text pattern paper.
I added three cream vintage paper trey ink buttons to the bottom lower right corner.  I wanted to repeat the pink, so I cut thin strips of pink pirouette card stock and threaded them through the vintage buttons.
I added a sentiment label to the pink text pattern paper.  I stamped the sentiment in soft suede classic ink and used my modern label punch to create the label.  I matted the label with pink pirouette card stock, and added half pearls to each end.  I adhered the label to the card front with foam tape.  Finally, I gave the whole card with a few spritzs of my home-made frost shimmer spray.  To help give this sweet baby card, a bit of sparkle!
I hope that you get a chance to play along with the wonderfully talented ladies over @ Just Us GirlS challenge.  I know that they would love to see what you create!
