CC163 - Little Things



I totally forgot to come back and post my card for the Color Combo Challenge here on my blog.....

I'm trying to catch up with everything..... and the girls had Dentist Appointments - plus I haven't been to the store for days etc....

I had to play this morning - I love these wonderful colors that Emily has picked for us!!! Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip - don't they look so beautiful together???

When I created one of my cards with the "Happy Harmony" Set the other day I was reading this wonderful sentiment "It's the little things that make life BIG" and I was thinking to myself how beautiful and true it is!!!

So when I started thinking of cards - I was thinking of creating a baby card and I knew I had to add it some how....Did I ever tell you that I love making *BABY CARDS"??? They are soooo cute....

Anyway - I started with Pretty in Pink as my base. Before I started adding the Chocolate Chip and the "Dotted" CB embossed Certainly Celery CS to the base - I have pierced the top and bottom of the Chocolate Chip CS and distressed the edges of both Cardstocks. I've also added the 5/8" Chocolate Chip Ribbon.

The scalloped PP CS and the main image were punched out with the Mary Punches. The hand image is from the retired "I'm Here" Set. To finish it off I have added some Silver Brads.

Thank you for stopping by!!!!

This is too cute, Silke! The embossed background reminds me of the Minkie (don't know if I spelled that right) fabric my step-mother-in-law used to make my baby's blankets... it's the softest stuff, and it looks darling on this card! So fitting for a baby card. (hate to see that set retire... *sigh*)

This is so completely adorable, I just love it! The colors are great for a baby card, I may have to play with that as well! And congrats on being Featured Stamper btw - sorry I'm a little behind the times and slow to say so, I'm catching up with the stamping world tonight!
