Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #53


For this sketch I have made a baby girl card in anticipation of my baby niece or nephew who is arriving today!!! I have made a boy card also, it just doesn't qualify for this sketch, so I will share it later.

Karen Giron's wonderful sketch..

And here is my effort..

With a close-up of the cute buttony bow :)

Pink Pirouette c/stock base, layered with kaleidescope DSP which I have sponged with Rose Red ink. Then more PP c/stock, sponged and stamped with the Polka Dot background stamp in Rose Red. I have used my NEW Fiskars apron lace border punch along the bottom. On top of the polka dot panel I have attatched some wide PP grosgrain ribbon, tied off with a Sherbet button and linen thread. The feature panel is stamped with the buggy image from the Fun & Fast Notes set, and punched out using the 1 3/4" circle punch, then mounted on another circle in PP cut using my CM cutting system. The scallops are Purely Pomegranate c/stock circles, punched with my 3/4" circle punch. I have coloured the buggy with Stampin' Write markers in Pretty in Pink and Rose Red, and 'blinged' up the carriage with dazzling diamonds glitter! The sentiment is from the retired hostess set So Many Sayings.
All product used is Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.
I hope you like it, .. now back to pacing the floor waiting for this baby!
