Baby Face

"Baby face. You've got the cutest little baby face." This week's challenge theme at Card Crafter's Circle is -- have you guessed? -- yes, it is baby. Now I've got that song stuck in my head and can't get it out. (Hum, does anyone even remember that song or have I just dated myself?) Anyway, this is my card.

Before I tell you what I did with my card, we need to pause for a word from our sponsor:
Your creation should be for a baby... boy or girl, we love them all!

We are always excited to have our current sponsor Pink Gem Designs Pink Gem has been a generous sponsor all year and has provided darling images for the DT and for our winner. The winner will have their choice of 4 Black/White images from Pink Gem Designs inventory!

Now, for what I did on my card. This is a sweet, fairly simple card, but I added extra interest by printing my image twice, cutting out parts, and foam dotted them to the original design for the 3-D effect. You can see in my second photo above that the little blue birds, the baby's head and ruffles on her cap, and one hand have been raised.
My DP is from a precious little pack from the UK (I know, I do that to you all the time). It is from the Tatty Teddy collection called Me to You by carte blanche (and yes, they use the lower case letters at the beginning of their name). The white "lace" border is from a Martha Stewart punch, and the pink dotty ribbon is from Offray. The three sweet little roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts


  1. You may call this "simple", Jenee, but you managed to put such a lot of pretty details in there! I just adore those sweetie-tweeties and the way you made everything pop!

  13. Hello there,
    Fabulous pink creation, love it.
    Isn't it great to be able to use pink freely and not keep it as a guilty pleasure. lol
