Another Baby Card

I liked my recent baby card so much - I had to make another one.....



I used the colors and sketch from the current CAS-Colours and Sketches challenge, see below. The baby elephant is more minty in real life - looks more blue in the picture.... I wanted to make a color neutral card, as the gender of the baby is not known yet.....


I again pulled out my Paper Smooches set Chubby Chums - its my go-to set when it comes to baby cards...... and stamped it on patterned paper. The cork is from Home Depot, I think its a shelf liner or something like that and has a sticky back - how convenient.... Stamped the sentiment - it's from the same set. The toe nails and tusk I accented with liquid enamel. 


I am also adding this card to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Anything goes
and Less is More - use more than one stamp (I used 3)
And Dream Valley has Baby as a theme - I am on the DT - perhaps you wan to play as well!

Thanks for visiting my blog today :)

Liebe Cornelia, diese Babykarte ist allerliebst. Du machst wirklich wunderbare Karten und ich freue mich so sehr, dass mich deine Werke unversehrt erreicht haben. Vielen Dank, dass du uns bei unserer Kartenaktion unterstützt und ich bin noch immer sprachlos, dass uns wirklich Karten aus den USA geschickt wurden, für einen kleinen Verein im bayerischen Eichstätt. Wahnsinn! Du bist großartig! Vielen DANK und alles Liebe, Martina
