Cutest Baby Ever - Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:

I have been itching to use my Baby Prints stamp set for a while! I think spring fever has hit me and the whole feeling of "new" has put this stamp set on my mind, but I just knew this would be a perfect stamp for this sketch!

Here are the card details:
  • Card base is Pool Party - 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (scored in half)
  • I chose a pattern from the retired Sale-a-bration paper Sweet Sorbet - 4" x 5-1/4" (cut in half at diagonal)
  • Whisper White card stock - 2-3/4" x 4" (matted with Crisp Cantaloupe card stock - 3" x 4-1/4")
  • The baby foot prints are stamped in Sahara Sand (aren't they ADORABLE!) This whole panel is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • I found the banner in my Summer Starfruit bag of scraps (YAY) but it measures 3-1/2" x 1"
  • I originally was going to use the words "it's a" but couldn't decide whether to use "girl" or "boy" so instead I stamped the image from Label Love with Pool Party ink onto Pool Party card stock and punched with the Artisan Label Punch.
  • I stamped the words in Crisp Cantaloupe onto Whisper White card stock and punched out with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch. The words are mounted onto the Pool Party label with dimensionals. Everything else lays flat on the card.

I think this card can work for either gender. I know a couple of women that are pregnant so I can't wait for someone to have their baby so I can send this card to them!

  1. This really is sweet! Love it. Those little feet are just too cute. love the choice of papers you used too. Another great sample for my sketch challenge! Thanks so much. FYI--I have had a real hard time getting your blog to open lately when I come to comment??? The link on the blog does not bring me here and then it won't open new pages--hopefully it is just on my end but you may want to check it out. Thanks again for your fabulous samples.
