SSSC64 Welcome Baby




Good Sunday Morning Peeps!!!! It is Sunday and that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has done it again, another awesome sketch:






I had such fun making this card. I wanted to do something a bit different, my first thought when I saw the sketch was butterflies, but that still was not doing it for me. Then I thought about maybe some little animals, oh maybe like in pink or blue, maybe elephants or something like that for a baby card. The more I thought about a baby card I thought about the cute little boat in the SU "Nursery Necessities" set, which I don't have but I have made these little boats with punches before and so the idea was born!!! LOL!!!

I pulled out some cloud DS paper from the Welcome Neighbor paper pack. When looking for colors to go with it, I realized that baja matched fairly well. Well, that lead me to the now retired Sweet Slumber paper. Great colors in that pack and I pulled out the fun striped piece and pulled my colors from it. Riding hood red and so saffron. I used kraft for my base which is 5-1/4 inch square. The sentiment is from the "Short & Sweet" stamp set.

The inside:
