Oh Baby

This is another great week for challenges, 2012 is starting off on the right foot. That's for sure. So many challenges so little time. What's a gal to do? This card is for the Our Creative Corner challenge and the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.


The stamp is Penny Black and it was colored with Copic markers. The challenge at OCC is to use the inspirational photo to make a 'baby themed' item. When I looked at the photo, my eye was immediately drawn to the one, large, golden colored flower on top of the cake. The coral flowers and the tree got my attention next. So this card is an attempt to recreate those items. The bear is for the golden colored flower, bet you can figure out the rest (wink).




I took a few liberties with the Mojo Monday sketch. I can never cut two squares the same size so I replaced the squares with rectangles hahaha, rotated the sketch 90 degrees and made the center panel narrower. Here is the Mojo Monday Sketch so you can see the changes I made.


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

This is just too precious. I love the bear...I love how he's sleeping - a bear after my own heart. Love the flowers.
