A Little Birdie Told Me...

Pin It

Good evening!  Popping in tonight to share a card I made using this week's sketch over at RetroSketches.  I love this sketch.  Initially, I was drawn to the scale of it…  The focal point of the card is relatively small which leaves quite of bit of "white space" on the card.  Interesting….  :)

I have been wanting to make a card for a co-worker of my mother's who just found out not too long ago she is having a little girl…  Babies of any variety are fun, but there is something magical about baby girls!  Oh, the dresses!  And the bows!  And the teensy-weensy little shoes!  And pink!  (Who doesn't love pink???)

So this card is for Angelica and her sweet little baby girl…  Congratulations!  :)

You'll notice that, even though I was drawn to the scale of the sketch, I didn't create my card with the same proportions…  And I have a (really) good reason.  I promise.  I love, love, love this stamp set from PTI ("Tweet Talk").  But no matter how I try, I find it impossible to stamp these sweet little birds without their tailfeathers (besides, Nelly & P. Diddy wouldn't approve if there weren't some to shake!  ;)

And here's the sketch I was working off of:

Thanks for stopping by…  I'll be back tomorrow night with a card that made my mother say this:  "What did you do to this one?!?  I've never seen a card look like that before…"   Hmmmm…  Not quite sure how to take that…  ;)

Have a great Wednesday!  :)
