Banners for Baby
There's no real story behind this card other than I smiled a lot making it, thinking of the times when we brought our boys home from the hospital. And if you haven't had any babies, why, what's there not to smile about when polka dots, happy, bright colors and clouds are involved?
For Practicing Creativity Design's latest release, the team issued a couple of sketch challenges for a chance to win a really big prize from PCD. Not only is the prize very nice, but the sketches are really easy to use and very versatile. My own challenge was to create a baby card (per the request of a co-worker, love it when they ask me to make them one!) and I figured that a banner floating in the sky to welcome a little one would be fun to make. The pennants are covered with glossy accents and allowed to dry before cutting. I also overstamped the clouds and highlighted a few for dimension in the background-can you see it?) One of the challenges over at 365 Cards is to use banners-I love banners!
