Basic Grey, Babies and Bows!

It's Thursday and that means it's Digi Stamp Day with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff! Yesterday I went shopping with Cindi (one of our talented Design Team Members) and then we met Lindsay (of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff) for lunch at a local Thai restaurant. We all enjoyed delicious food and had a great time. While Cindi and I were shopping, I found (what I thought) was going to be a versatile embossing folder that I could use for birthdays, Christmas.... Turns out, when I got it home, it was for baby cards. If you look closely, you can see a baby bottle and booty in the embossing. So...I decided to keep it anyway and use it with the BABIES AND BOWS stamp set that Lindsay designed. I really like how this card turned out. It could be used for a baby shower or for a new baby. With a different sentiment, it could be used for a baby's first birthday as well. I wanted to use non-traditional colors instead of predictable pastels. To give the card a more "finished" look, I added faux stitching to the card stock panels and was able to meet a challenge at the Sunflowers and Dragonflies challenge blog.

LOL, I was going to create a card with this set too but didn't get a chance yet. Love it and really love the colors, like Melissa said it's not the ussual pink or blue. Love that!

I love how much attention to detail you put into this card. For one, I can't imagine cutting out those tiny images, but you did a great job. I like the pen added doodling, too. What a great way to add your personal touch!
