Hello Baby! PP#167

October 15, 2013

After a great tennis game today, I decided to play along with The Paper Players.  I LOVE the color combination in their challenge.  We are expecting our first Grandson in the next few weeks, so I thought a baby card in these colors would be perfect!  We have four Granddaughters, so this little boy is going to be surrounded by little girls.  Exciting times ahead for all of us!


Stampin' Up! Products:

Paper:  Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Whisper White

Ink:  Midnight Muse

Stamp Set:  Zoo Babies

Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Snail Adhesive, Big Shot Cutting Machine, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Label Bracket Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Modern Label Punch, Window Punch

Embellishments:  Pearls

I really LOVE hippos, but this stamp set did not have a hippo, so I decided the next best thing was the rhino.  I actually like the way he turned out.   Grammy always uses polka dots, so the two different sizes made the card perfect.

I hope you are enjoying your day!
Leave a comment on my card and tell me what you think.
