Sweet Pea

Can I toot my own horn? I love how this card turned out! Believe me, this is not always the case. In fact, this little fella went through a few permutations to get where he is.

The sweet pea image was stamped with Versa Fine's Onyx Black ink. That way I could do my water coloring without worrying about the outline smudging all over. I used two shades of green with my aqua painter to color him in, Old Olive and Certainly Celery.

The "congratulations!" stamp is from Baby Bundle. I simply stamped it over and over in a row to make the sentiment strip at the bottom.

On the inside I added a bit of the same pattern paper that is on the front, trimmed with some scalloped green paper to echo the scalloped oval that is also on the front. :)

A ribbon bow and button finished it off. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

I love this card! The pea-in-a-pod image is so adorable. Looks like you got to use your new Cuttlebug, too!

I was the proud receipient of a card a lot like this from you! Thank you so much for all the time and effort it went into making. It certainly will be one I keep in James' scrapbook. I hope to call you soon with good news of James' arrival, but for the time being...we're just waiting. ;) Thanks for the darling card!
