Retro baby mobile

Hi stampers!  So it's a pick your favorite sketch over at Retro Sketches and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  This is probably my favorite sketch there so far!

I was planning on using it this week anyway because I need a baby card for my friends shower this weekend and this reminds me of a baby mobile.  I just had to wait to get my box of new stuff (yes, another one...I know...I have a issues, lol) because I wanted to use the little owls from itty bitties.  If I'm being honest they may be the reason I got the entire set, lol!  Thanks to facebook I knew that their nursery was owl themed and was all pink and gray and tan.  So, there was my color combo!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Itty bitties, pennant parade
Paper:  Whisper white, basic gray, sahara sand, pretty in pink
Ink:  Whisper white craft, basic gray, sahara sand, melon mambo, pretty in pink, pink pirouette
Accessories:  Paper peircing pack, large scallop edgelit, white baker's twine, twitterpatted buttons
It's hard to see the little owls because really the itty bitties stamps are ITTY BITTY!  :-)  But they are super cute.  I hope that she "gets" that it's supposed to be a mobile, lol!  I wanted to use the little bottle caps so you could see my owls better but they must be popular as they were back ordered!  That will teach me to wait to order something, ha!  I also cheated a bit and used a retired button from the twitterpated buttons last year...but at least I'm using them:-)

Happy stamping!

  2. Omgosh this is absolutely precious! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work. Love the layout, color combo and details!

  3. Adorable baby card! How perfect that you matched the theme of the nursery!

    Hey, if you only bought the Itty Bitty set for the owl and are looking to unload the squirrel, I just might know somebody who would take it off your hands (wink, wink)! ;-)

  4. So sweet - and how wonderful that it coordinates with the nursery!! The bottle caps would have been a nice accent but I very much like how clean and sweet it is without them!! Thanks for joining us at retrosketches!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
