Babies, Babies, Babies!!!

Well I've been DYING to share this card with everyone...I am really proud of it. As always, my best work comes out when I make a card with someone in mind. This card is for my very good friend, that was having twins...but they found out it is actually only one...a really, really strong one! So great news for her and her family. I'm telling you...makes me want another one.

But onto the is a compilation of a few designs...Beate's card on SCS a few weeks ago and my friend Gwen's Anniversary Card from a stamp camp many moons ago...well at least the diagonal concept! I really heart my cuttlebug and got this embossing folder Bloom Dots...which reminds me of Easter and all things Spring. The embossed panels were accented with Brilliance Moonlight White and cut on an angle.

This Baby set Special Delivery ($11.95 for 10 images) from TAC is adorable...every image is cute! I watercolored the babies using a Dove Blender and my AquaColor Crayons (I have the 48 ct. set...otherwise you don't have enough colors...and with TAC you can get it 1/2 price with $100 purchase...and no I don't sell TAC, I just REALLY love the company and affordability of the stamps). Watercoloring is still a challenge for me...but I'm getting better at it. Leaving white space is the key! I used the Creative Memories Circle Maker (which exactly fits the images)...stamp and color then flip and punch.

I used the slot punch to make holes for the ribbon and taped the back to stabilize things before gluing down.
