Little Additions Baby Announcement - TSSC255

Happy Monday Morning! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is the sketch for this week:

My card is a bit of stretch from the sketch, but I didn't realize, until I was done, how everything would (or not) fit together! I realized I don't have any type of baby cards in my store so off I went to search my baby stamps. I decided to use Little Additions stamp set and there is a PERFECT baby-themed color combo in the Color Coach - Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery!

I stamped the crib in Chocolate Chip and wanted a banner to announce the new baby in subtle baby colors. The banners in Little Additions are so cute and the alphabet from the new Designer Typeset photopolymer stamp set fit perfectly!!! I stamped the chair in Pretty in Pink and stamped the teddybear in Chocolate Chip and stamped him right onto the chair!

The image is layered with Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, and Chocolate Chip and an embossed layer of Certainly Celery. I also pleated ribbon down the side of the card and added a couple of Certainly Celery buttons to hold up the banner. I punched a small flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and placed it on the crib with a little pearl as an additional accent.

I couldn't resist adding some baby footprints to the inside of this card! I might have gone just a little over the top on this card. This is not my typical card but I do love the colors and all the layers. It was pretty heavy with all the layers so I had to weigh it....0.95 ounces!!! My typical cards are 0.40-0.45 ounces....yikes!
