Sweet Baby...

Happy Monday!!! Here goes another work week, let's just hope the weekend gets here fast! {LOL!!!!} I needed a card for a baby shower that I will be attending on Saturday. When I was at my LSS I saw this cute little giraffe by Imaginisce for $1. I mean I couldn't pass that deal up, right?!?!?

So I started off by inking her up with Brilliance Graphite Black Ink and stamped her on some White Daisy CS and colored her with my copics. I then layered her on some Baby Pink CS and then again on some Buttercup CS that I ran through my CB using my Rectangle Nestabilities. I then added a pink prima and White Daisy Bigger brad and put her to the side to work on my base. My base is a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Buttercup CS folded in half. I then cut a 2" piece of White Daisy CS and ran it through my CB using the Swiss Dots folder. Next I cut a slightly larger piece of Baby Pink CS and ran it through the CB using the Bloomin Dots folder and taped both of these to my base. I then added some Pink Satin Ribbon over the middle of these two pieces and pop dotted my image on top! I then worked on my sentiment using two different stamps. I used the Adorable stamp set for "SWEET" and then the Sans Alpha for Baby. I stamped both of these using Baby Pink Ink on White Daisy CS and layered it on a piece of Buttercup CS. I then colored two little white flowers with a copic and added a White Daisy Bitty Brad to each center of the flowers and called it done! :D Thanks for stopping by today!!! :D
