Today is my “babies” birthday – he’s 27 years old today. Happy Birthday, Bud! He was born on a leap year and I was very thankful he was a March1st baby and and a February 29th baby! Then again he’d only be 6 years old and I’d be a lot younger too, he he.
Welcome to another challenge at My Time To Craft and this week we have a sweet challenge for you – Infants!
This challenge was a touch one for me, not that it is a hard challenge but I had to choose just one baby image – I have several that I just love. It’s like Sophie’s Choice, it’s hard to choose just one but finally I decided to use this heart tugging image from Phindy’s Place. Now that I had my image I went in search of a sketch to use and low and behold look at the sketch from this weeks challenge from Phindy’s Friday Challenge Blog:
I only modified the sketch slightly by placing the sentiment on the left rather than on the right side of the image. I colored the image using copic markers.
I used 3 different DP’s for my card. Sometimes it can be a challenge when mixing stripes and patterns but I find that as long as I stick within the same color family – it just works. Another trick is to use papers from a collection – for this card I’m using a paper pad from Me & My Big Ideas.
I embossed the circle using a number embossing folder from Cuttlebug – again tieing in the background paper’s numbers and letters.
I hope I’ve inspired you to join us this week for “Infants” challenge at My Time To Craft – I can’t wait to see your creations! Dee
