PPA116 - Sketch for Baby

Welcome to Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge. Margaret Moody has provided us with another fine sketch. How will you interpret it?

Here, I chose to make my card 5" x 5". I snipped the bottom of the Whisper White front off by using the Eyelet Border punch. I put a strip of Nursery Nest paper above it on the front and below it on the inside of the card.

I covered the rest of the front with a second print from Nursery Nest. I then wrapped a 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon in Blushing Bride and tide a knot on the right side.

On top of the ribbon, I popped up a square in Perfect Plum, which was run through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. A third print from Nursery Notes was placed on top of the Perfect Plum and accented with a row of Basic Pearls.

Finally, I added my sentiment from the God's Blessings stamp set. I stamped it onto Whisper White using Perfect Plum ink. Before adhering it to my Perfect Plum piece, I matted it with a piece of Blushing Bride card stock.

I hope you enjoy looking. Please leave any comments you have below. I love to read each and every one.

Patti this is adorable! Love the look and colors. The bottom trim reminds me of a cozy baby crib made up... and the focal point a picture on the wall.
Just me? Love it. Hugs.
