For A New Mommy

I was looking forward to pulling out my fun punches for this, except I stashed many of them in a box and totally forgot about them for this week's Mami Doodle Challenge. How terrible of me!

Instead I have a card to share with you that uses my corner rounder punch, a little bit of a cop-out, but when I finished this card yesterday around midnight, I was too tired to re-do another card. I recycled, does that count?

Baby Card
Stamps: (Mama-to-be)Mami Doodles; (Mega Mixed Messages) Papertrey Ink
Paper: (evelope) Recyclables; (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink)
Ink: (Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Pencil); (Soft-core Color Pencils, Double-ended Art Markers) Prismacolor;

Regarding the recycling aspect, I recycled an envelope from a card that I received. The inside had this beautiful, cheery polka-dotted yellow paper.

I fell in love with the polka-dotted pattern and knew I had to incorporated it somehow. The yellow/gray color scheme have recently been on my mind, so this card finally gave me an excuse to put this color combo into action.

I decided to find a bunch of baby-related sentiments and stamped them off on this pattern paper. I wanted to give it a layering effect, so the typography is build by creating a full base, but tapering off to the top & left. Just enough room to plant the beautiful mommy-to-be into the card.

She was an absolute joy to color. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy? Appropriate saying, since there is so much yellow on this card ;)

Hope to see you play along. Don't be like me, and remember to use a Punch!

Awesome card! I love the way the image is positioned partly outside the border of the card. Wonderful coloring and great use of the envelope paper!
