Embellish Color Challenge - Baby Theme

Hooray!!! It's Embellish Challenge time again! This time around the challenge is to create a project that uses the colors pictured above and is of a baby theme. Our sponsor for this week is someone that I consider a dear friend... Dawn of Wplus9 Design Studio! As a member of the Wplus9 design team, I can personally tell you that these stamps are top quality and stamp beautifully. As for the stamp designs, you can tell that Dawn has put her heart and soul into creating them. They are so unique, amazing and easy to work with.

Here is what I came up with...
For my card, I've used Kisses & Cuddles and Design Basics: Backgrounds 1. Used one of the background images stamped in Versamark onto a Melon Berry cardstock strip. Wrapped it with Spring Moss satin ribbon and attached it to a Vintage Cream card base.
This adorable old style pram is from the Kisses & Cuddles set. Isn't it just too cute?! I paper pieced the pram to match the stamped Melon Berry strip and then embellished it with a cute little yellow bow. I love the sentiments in this set, they fit together so perfectly. Which made stamping this phrase, in two different colors, a breeze!

Now it's your turn to give this fun challenge a try! There's a fabulous prize up for grabs... two Wplus9 stamps of your choice! You can find much more amazing inspiration and the challenge details here. Hope to see your challenge creations soon!

  9. Maile, I wanted to stop in and thank you for visiting my blog to leave a sweet comment on my card for the last Embellish challenge...I appreciate your kind words, especially considering they come from such a talented designer. I've been admiring your work with the rest of the Papertrey girls for quite some time now. This card is so very sweet. Your last Papertrey release projects were wonderful also! Your eye for color and creative layouts really shined through on each and every one. Thanks for sharing your creativity and talent with the rest of us!! Hope to hear from you again someday!
