Sweet Pea

Good Monday morning friends! I hope you had a great weekend! We were a bit more relaxed, kind of, we are trying to kick the cold/etc. that is wafting through our family right now! We are almost all on the up, Ruby started coughing pretty hard last night...dang! But, the kids are at school today, so that is impovement!

I thought I'd take a quick break from holiday cards and I went with a new baby card...a Sweet Pea card! I took the colors from the card from the Sweet Pea rub-on that I wanted to use, it is from an American Crafts rub-on set. So for the color palette today, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip...yum!!
I stared with a Crushed Curry card base and then a layer of the Crushed Curry dsp. I used my fiskars apron lace border punch on a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and then added a strip of Old Olive just under the chocolate. I laid down a single strip of sticky strip so I could lay my ribbon (upside down) down and have it cover the seam of the two papers. I also added another curry pattern of dsp lower on the card base.

I used white cardstock for my rub-on and then cut it out with my circle nestabilites and a trip through the big shot. I also cut out a Chocolate Chip circle and an Olive scallop circle with my nesties. I made a little bow out of my Curry ribbon and then added a large Chocolate Chip brad to the center. I added it to the card with dimensionals.

I think I don't make enough new baby cards...so I'm hoping to get a few more made in the coming days! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I appreicate hearing what you think of what I'm creating....so feel free!!:) Make it a great one!
