Sweet Pea

Christy Beckwith is the anchor illustrator for My Favorite Things (she's the creator of WTG) and she's due to have her first child in a couple of weeks. I had the pleasure of meeting Christy last summer at CHA in Orlando--she's a doll and I know she'll make a fantastic mother! This card is for her--I'm using a retired WTG set called She's Having a Baby. It's also for the CAS DT challenge on SCS.

I stamped the sweet little images on One Sheet Wonder card stock and colored them with Copic markers. OMGosh! but I love that card stock!!! Smooth as can be, takes all kinds of blending without a hint of bleeding. Be still my heart!! OK, back to the card. The base is Barely Banana and I added a layer of Whisper White, run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder--so baby-like, don't you think? Then I punched the images out with my 1" square punch and popped them up on Pop Dots. For the Barely Banana element, I took all the sentiment words and made a background stamp with them, stamped it twice, and tied a green gingham ribbon around. Finally, I added a button from MFT's Chocolate Kiss collection, tied on with Perle cotton and some teeny tiny pearls to the rattler.

Thanks for dropping in today!
