Color Throwdown # 16

OK, this was a tough one for me. The colors this week are Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Ballet Blue, and Green Galore. Hmmmm. My mojo's on vacation. What to do? Well, I dug out this DP and it has all the colors in it, and I need a baby card soon, so what the heck!

I started with a Chocolate Chip card base, then added a layer of Ballet Blue, which I paper pierced all around. Next, a layer of Green Galore on which I used my scalloped border punch and also paper pierced each scallop. Next, a layer of the DP and I also scalloped the edge of it. I wanted lots of the paper to show, so I needed a small sentiment element. I stamped the baby image from Punches Three twice on Whisper White card stock--once with Chocolate Chip and once with Creamy Caramel. I cut the center out of the Creamy Caramel one and layered it on dimensionals on top of the Chocolate Chip image. I punched holes in the bottom one, where the little stars are, and threaded blue sheer and tan satin ribbon through the holes and secured the ribbon to the back. That's pretty much it. Not earth shattering but it'll do. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at what I've been up to!
