Take 1

Hi stampers!  I hope you've all had a great weekend!  We took a little impromptu trip to my hubby's college town this weekend!  It was fun but also means there wasn't much stamping around here but I did get a few cards done on Friday and finished up yesterday before we left! 

I really liked (yet again) the color challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary this week!  I probably like it so much because it's a combo straight out of the everyday enchantment DSP!  Well, I was going to use the DSP but inspiration struck and took me in a different direction!  I thought these colors would make a cute baby card!  I know, I know....I've got baby on the brain.  I blame my new little cousin partly and the fact that I want one of my own, hehe!  I also need a baby boy card for a shower in a couple of weeks for another cousin and this color combo fit the bill! 
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Fox & friends, letter it, pennant parade
Paper:  Whisper white, pool party, lucky limeade, peach parfait
Ink:  Pool party, lucky limeade peach parfait
Accessories:  Circle punch, scalloped circle punch, 5/16th jumbo brads, pool party ruffled ribbon

I took the layout from a card in last years Idea Book & Catalog.  The little baby sentiment is from pennant parade and we all know that one of my favorite things is to stamp over the letters in letter it!  I also FINALLY used up some of the jumbo brads that I just HAD to have and then they sat and sat and sat, lol!  I think it will be a cute card in with the present...which I NEED to go get soon....that was on the list for the weekend until we picked up and ran out of town:-)

And since this wasn't my original idea for this challenge I'll be back with take 2;-)

Happy stamping!
