Hello Baby! (Paper Players Sketch Part 2)

Hello and Happy Friday...or as we are calling it in our house, "Turkey Recovery Day"! I hope everyone here in the U.S. enjoyed their Thanksgiving, yesterday. We had a fantastic time with our great group of friends (and the abundance of food that was also in attendance). We were sent home with enough food for at least 3 more meals. Yikes! Today, though, we are in "turkey time-out" and I'm making some good ol' Texas chili for dinner. Mmmm! My only shopping was done from my Mac today, I was not about to brave those crowds. No way! How about you, did you shop today? 

I mentioned earlier this week that I had two other cards that I created from Nance's sketch Challenge over at The Paper Players this week. Well, I almost forgot to post them and the challenge ends tonight. Eeek! You still have 9 more hours to play along with us this week! ;) Also I completely forgot to take a photo of BOTH of the cards before I mailed one of them off on Tuesday. I hate when I do things like that...turkey on the brain, I guess. To distract you from my "whoops", I present you with this ONE happy baby card! How can you not smile with that cute, little, orange giraffe from the Fox and Friends set? 
Since this card is for a little girl, I thought it would be fun to add "Baby's First BLING" to the card with 2 sizes of pink jewels and some super-shiny ribbon. All little diva's have to start somewhere with the sparkle, right? There are lots of DOTS on this card, to play off that adorable giraffe image. The card came together really easily, inside and out, with the help of my punches, too. I think it is a fun change from using the same ol' pastel colors on a baby card, which really just wouldn't suit the parents of this particular (soon-to-be) munchkin.

  5. Fabulous colors! I love the bling and your color selection.

    No shopping for me today either. I can't stand the crowds. Just a little on-line browsing.

    I'm glad you had a great Turkey Day.

  6. FAB card Anne Marie! Love using these colors on a baby card--so modern and I adore how you've used the sentiment as the second element and balanced everything with the brads at the bottom! It's just perfect and I'm so glad you enjoyed the sketch! Have a great weekend!
