Hello Baby

I needed a card for a friend whose daughter recently had a baby.  I used the KA-POW Kreative Challenge 4 and the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #117 - CAS with Ribbon.

The base of the card is Pretty in Pink card stock.  I ran another piece of Pretty in Pink through the Big Shot with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.  A bow was made using retired Certainly Celery taffeta ribbon and attached to the embossed layer with a glue dot under the

bow and the other tail attached on the back.  A piece of Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon was added on the other side and the end notched.  The sentiment on the image from the Easy Events stamp set says for baby, but I didn't want that sentiment.  I used some scotch tape and covered up the sentiment, inked the image with StazOn ink, removed the tape and stamped the image on Watercolor paper.  I then add the sentiment
from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set under the image.  The image was colored with Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Tangerine Tango inks using a blender pen.  I punched out the image with a Scallop Circle Punch and sponged the edges with Certainly Celery ink.  I attached the image to the card with dimensionals.  Three pearls were added to the ribbon and one pearl colored with a  permanent marker was added to the eye.  I hope you've had a great weekend.  The snow finally stopped last evening and fortunately, we didn't get as much as  predicted.  It will probably be gone in a day or so as the weather warms up a bit.  I have to admit, though, it is pretty to look at.  Enjoy the rest of your day; I'm going back to watching the Steelers.

Love this card. I often forget the textured plates. Love how this came out. I need a boy card. I think this will look terrific in blue also. TFS

Cute Card! I love the texture plate for the background and I like that you made the stamp set your own by changing the sentiment.
