Hello, Sweet Pea!!!!

. This is a quick baby card I made for my husband to take to a co-worker who recently had a very sweet baby girl. The main image for this is Sweetpea from Lockhart Stamp Company colored in with Stampin' Write markers that coordinate with the Little Girls PP ( Regal Rose w/ Creamy Caramel layered on top of it, Ruby Red, Garden Green, and Sage Shadow.) This is such a sweet 8 x8 paper kit from Cosmo Cricket! The main image and the mat are punched with Marvy Uchida punches. The layout for the card is last weeks sketch challenge at SCS- these are fun, beautiful and perfect when you need to put together a quick card. I did twink it a bit because in the sketch the main image is shown as a square. I felt the circle with the scalloped edges softened the layout a bit- perfect for a baby girl card. All edges have been sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. I used my craft knife to cut out the little flowers on the lower right hand corner to act as a "photo corner" then added some faux stitching and a little brown velvet brad in the left hand corner for balance. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain. The next few days will be very busy. Besides the Thursday GS meeting, the Simply Southern Scrapbook Convention is coming to my home town this year. It will take place this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (October 4th -6th.) I am assisting my upline teach 2 classes and she and I are taking 1 class and participating in a crop together. I am so... excited about that because she and I rarely get to craft for fun together! And I can't forget the vendors on Friday and Saturday!!! So I may not have time to show cards or pages BUT definitely stay tuned. I will be offering details for blog candy in honor of World Card Making Day on Thursday evening.
