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!
