Its a Boy!

{For my Shining the Light post click here}

Hello, again!  Saturday is almost done and I have another card to share.  This one works for several challenges:  Less Is More (Baby or Child - I went with Baby), Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (Use 3 of something starting with one letter.  I went with "b") and Sketchbook Saturday.



When I saw the LIM challenge this morning I was so thankful that last month I won a super cute baby set that was included in the April Flourishes release.  I was also thankful that Chupa's wonderful sketch this week would work perfectly for a CAS style card!  Since I'm still in my white on white with a pop of color mood I went with using just white and baby blue (one of my "b" items... the others are bow, buttons, baby & boy).  I cut a piece of PTI's Bitty Box Basics paper in Spring Rain and adhered it to my card front.  The fishtail flag was cut from PTI's white cardstock using the largest Fishtail Flag die from the MFT Fishtail Flag Stax set (I absolutely LOVE those dies!!) and adhered over the patterned paper.   Then I added the Spring Rain double stitched ribbon.  The onesie was stamped on the patterned paper using black ink, trimmed out and adhered to the card using foam dimensionals.  The sentiment was added using black ink followed by three little Spring Rain buttons.  I matted the white piece with some Spring Rain cardstock.   Pretty cute, don't ya think?

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Spring Rain; PP:  PTI Bitty Box Basics; Stamps:  Flourishes Hello Baby; Ink:  Tuxedo Black; Buttons:  PTI Spring Rain; Ribbon:  PTI Spring Rain double stitch
