Blogger's Challenge #115, Baby!

This Friday's Blogger Challenge is "Baby." When I saw the challenge, I immediately thought that the darling new set Animal Stories would work great for this! I was under the weather Thursday so am just now getting this up today!

I love the colors in the pretty Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper so I selected this delicate design that is predominately Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry and used it for the color scheme. The card base is Whisper White layered with Melon Mambo on top which has been run through the Big Shot with the Large Dots Texturz Plate.

I stamped the giraffe in Melon Mambo on white then cut it out and laid it aside. The Scallop Circle in Crushed Curry was diecut with the Scallop Circles #2 die then I added dots on each scallop with the Signo White Gel Pen. A circle of Whisper White was cut with the Circle Scissors then run through the Big Shot with the Small Dots Texturz Plate then adhered to the curry scallop circle. The giraffe was then added to that with Dimensionals.

A strip of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP was treated with the Scallop Edge Punch and overlaid with Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and tie. The sentiment "hello baby" from Teeny Tiny Wishes was punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered on a Crushed Curry Modern Label Punch out for the final touch.
