"One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is that a cat has only nine lives."
Quick post today to share my baby card I made for the MFP Sketch with a Twist Challenge with the Baby theme. It seems the trend among young couples in my area is to wait until the birth of their baby to find out the gender. So I wanted to make a generic baby card to have on hand that would be good for a little boy or a little girl.
For my watercolor background, I used some second generation photo paper from that Cling Wrap Technique that went a bit awry for me. (But I am not about to let all those supplies I used go to waste!! Ha.) This time, instead of rewetting one of my bizarro-looking products and transferring onto watercolor paper, I transferred it on to another piece of photo paper. I loved this pastel result.
I used a rubber stamp that was part of a thrift store grab bag I snagged last year and teamed it up with some DCWV cardstock and some Candi that I won as part of a prize from Simon Says Stamp. (THANKS, SSS!!) Fun!! I don't use these very often, but they were just right for a baby card.
Here's the MFP Sketch I used from this week's challenge.
That's all for now. A little 3 yr-old just informed me that it is time to go look at the chickens......again. :) It's interesting how little ones always like the animals a lot more than the animals like them!! Ha.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my card!! As soon as this Grandma readjusts to having a 3 yr old in the house again, I will resume plans for a giveaway when I reach 50 followers.
Have a lovely day!!!
