We're are going to our first American Baby Shower this afternoon, and I've made this card for the family. They already have a daughter and were delighted to find out that the new baby is a boy!! So I decided to use mostly shades of blue on the card. I stamped the pinstripe background (second generation impression) first. To create the row of four panels I used my new film strip die. I stamped a number of different animals onto white card, coloured them with a mixture of Copics and paper piecing. I die cut a tiny little mouse in dark blue design paper (well it is a Waltzingmouse challenge) and adhered him with dimensional gel. I finished the front with a flag sentiment to say that our friends have so much excitement to come and a tiny butterfly going towards it. On the inside I cut a panel of Marina Mist for the mat layer and on the white panel stamped a sentiment and tiny blue chick!
I do hope that the weather kind to us all - it's a barbecue. So no snow and lots of sunshine would be great. Do check out Tara's card using our sketch. Hopefully lots of you will join in the fun this week. You have until Thursday 1st May, 5.00pm BST (Noon EDT) to join in the fun. See you soon - have a great weekend.
