Oh Baby!

I need to make some baby-themed cards for an expectant mother and as luck would have it I don't really own any decent stamps for the job.  The card I've got to show you today I made with some cheap stamps I picked up at Michael's for a few bucks.  They were on the clearance rack and didn't cost much and after having used them today I can see why.  Despite the lousy stamps, the card came out kinda cute *wink*

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout and as luck would have it, but not surprisingly, I missed that the bottom of my card is supposed to be different than the top.  I also used the colors from Cupcake Inspirations and before you wonder why I forgot the pink look really closely at the baby's mouth.  I feel badly that I didn't use more pink in the spirit of the challenge but since I screwed up the sketch I figured I might as well continue the theme with a screwed up color palette.  Sheesh.

Tomorrow is another day so hopefully I can redeem myself when I sit back down in the old craft cave.  Thanks for stopping by!

This is an adorable card, Jen, and I can so relate to missing bits off sketch challenges, etc. I just nodded my head in empathy when I read your post.
