Throwing Down some Color, Baby!

Happy Monday, everyone!

I have a couple of cards today for The Color Throwdown blog.  I needed some baby cards, and these soft palettes were a great jumping off point.   I actually set up this post LAST week, thinking I'd get several cards done.  Nope, just one.  But today, I am adding the current challenge just barely before the link-up deadline.  A friend of mine is due to deliver a baby boy by c-section at the end of the month.  The fact that her card is already done is either very funny or downright scary!  I have been behind All. Stinkin'. Year!  Any way, I chose SU's set "Fox and Friends" to make some patterned paper.  The sentiment is long-retired "So Very," also from SU.  I used soft sky, so saffron, smokey slate, and baked brown sugar inks.  A very simple layout with the challenge colors made this a quick card.  Some enamel dots and bakers twine wrap it all up.

This is the first card I made for this post.  I am working on past challenges from The Color Throwdown, and #427 is from the end of January!  I opted for a stamp set that isn't typically my go-to for baby cards:  "Vintage Vogue."  My nephew and his wife just had a baby girl...this card was NOT made in advance!  They actually did not find out the baby's gender until birth.  Rare these days, but I love it!  I chose blushing bride, pool party, and peaar pizzazz inks. The focal point is made with SU's "Baby Prints," outlined with my pear pizzazz marker.  The ribbon is left over from a recent gift (I never throw ribbon away!) and the shimmer enamel dots are from The Paper Studio.  I popped up a sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" as the final detail.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!!
