Baby Mine

Hi All!  I just got back from a baby shower and thought I'd share the card I made for the mama to be :)  Now you might have noticed- I LOVE me some cute design paper and have a slight addiction to 6x6 paper pads!  So I really went out of my comfort zone on this card and put it together with no design paper- I know, shock *gasp* right?!?  So I colored up this cute image from Mayzy Art Stamps called Mama Leah to be my focal point and went with a pretty bright pink since it would be on a white background- and it's also fitting since the little bundle of joy is a girl :)  Punching the bottom of the card with a Martha Stewart border punch gave some detail and I added some yellow pearls to the middle of the flowers.  Then to balance out the image I used some twine from The Twinery to make a bow through a button and stuck a couple of pins behind it.  This is about as clean and simple as I know how to go and I think it turned out all right- my favorite part might just be the one element that I truly didn't give any thought to until putting it all together- the color combo of pink and yellow!  Gonna have to remember that for the future!  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit- I hope it was worth your while :)
