Sweet Little Baby Card

I'm just gonna say it up front - I totally love this card. I think it turned out so sweet! We'll be making this at the card buffet (I know you're shocked) and I did two challenges with this card: the OCC sketch and the Curtain Call Color Challenge. I thought maybe I could make a gender-neutral baby card with these colors, but I realized early on that it just wasn't working that way and I stopped worrying about it. I'll just cut a little bit of certainly celery paper and ribbon in case anyone wants to make a boy card.

I started by stamping the bear from Cute & Cuddly with not quite navy ink on kraft cardstock. Then I stamped the bear again on rose red DP and cut out the tummy. The whole bear was cut out and placed on the circle diecut that's in the Alphabet Simple set of dies. Around the edge I placed eight 3/4" punched circles. I used the same DP for the background panel, then added a rose red grosgrain ribbon and bow to the white panel with the sentiment colored with markers and a bit of piercing. To finish everything off I added some rounded corners.

OK, I'm up to six finished cards (I know you haven't seen all of them yet but others will be posted in the coming days). Things are coming along... I'm off to work on #7!
