Sweet Baby Girl
Sometimes I wonder what it would by like to have my very own baby girl...To go through the process of picking out pink booties and tights with lacey behinds, finding every little dress that is frilly and pretty. I was destined, however, to live with the wonders of frogs, worms, snails, dirt, mud, etc. and am so very grateful to be blessed with two rambunctious, absolutely cute, fun and lovable boys. I'm happy and I'm content.
For this card, I knew I wanted to showcase the medallions other than in a birthday or anniversary form and I wanted to use the colors from the latest Color Cue Challenge. A baby girl card seemed to fit the bill as I was going through the creative process of pulling the colors out and some embellishments. I created the background paper by penciling in a light grid and repeatedly stamping a medallion. I thought Kraft paper would be a bit to heavy for this application. My solution was to bring that color in through the distressed inked edges and as an image base for my sentiment.
