CAS Colours and Sketches 136

Such beautiful soft colours in this week's colour palette at CAS Colours and Sketches!

I've been thinking baby cards this week, since someone in my Book Club asked me if we could do a card class instead of book club and include a baby card in the doings. Well, for me that's really only my recently acquired Zoo Babies stamp set. So all the stuff was on my desk, waiting for a good idea to come along. And those lovely soft pastels just seemed to be asking for a baby card... so here's what I came up with.

I'm not sure if this is the card we'll make at Book-cum-card Club this coming week, but I like it anyway and am in need of a baby girl card myself!

Card: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder
Stamps: Banner Blast, Zoo Babies.
Inks: Blushing Bride, So Saffron
Other: Decorative Dots embossing folder, Banner punch, Itty Bitty punch pack (retired), Blushing Bride baker's twine, brad bases, Blushing Bride and So Saffron candy dots, dimensionals, Crumb Cake marker pen to colour the cut edges for extra definition.

    1. Thanks Patricia. I always check what's happening at CC&S each week, even if I don't always get something made. Such soft and adorable colours this week, it was hard to resist!
