Hi All!  I've got another quick baby card to share with you- I swear there must be something in the water :)  This was a card order but I was pretty much given total freedom as long as I used the color palette of grey, yellow and coral which sounded like a winning combo to me!  I instantly thought of this gorgeous grey patterned paper from Pink Paislee- I think it's from the Soiree line- I bought a few sheets of it when I saw it the for the first time because I loved the pattern and shade of grey so much...a perfect neutral.  Then I grabbed a couple of different sheets from different MME lines for the yellow and coral patterned paper.  When I set them all down together they seemed to be the perfect match :)  I knew that I had some baby cards coming up so I snagged this image from Saturated Canary called New Baby the last time I was shopping and colored her up with my Copics to match.  I'm sure you can't tell from my blog but I'm a little obsessed with Krista's images- they are perfect for so many different things and I just LOVE coloring them!  To finish the card off I added some bling (shocking I know but I think it's kinda becoming my thing, lol), a shimmery doily from Martha Stewart, some flowers and a gorgeous wooden ticket from Prima.  Then it looked like it was missing a little something on the left so I tucked some pins tied together with bakers twine in there and decided it was good to go.  I've gotta say this color combo is definitely a favorite and will probably be popping up here again fairly soon :)  Hope you all enjoy- thanks so much for stopping by!
