Oh Baby! for OCC

Hi there! Happy Saturday to you! I am actually spending the day today at a Stampin' Up! Regional event right here in San Antonio. I'm really looking forward to visiting with some wonderful friends and getting crafty. Yee Haw! I'm sure I will have lots of photos to share. Stay tuned for them. 

It's time for another fun challenge over at Our Creative Corner and this week Lori Rider is our lovely hostess. We are using the following photo for inspiration:
Here are the details of the the challenge, from Lori: 
"Please choose at least two elements from the photo and describe how they inspired your card or project. Optional: since this is a baby shower dessert table, make something with a baby theme!"

I decided to use the coral and blue color combo and a baby theme for my card. I was also inspired by this week's sketch over at Stamping 411. These gals always have a fun sketch to play with and some fabby inspiration to share. Check it out. :) 
I paired the Domestic Goddess DSP with the Baby Bundle stamp set to create my card. That little bitty baby face is SO stinkin' cute, right? I dressed up the baby buggy with some Dazzling Details on the polka dots for a little pop.  
The hearts were created by rubbing a Versa-Mark pad over some Calypso Coral card stock and then embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder. I punched them out with the small heart punch and then popped them up with some Stampin' Dimensionals. I'm actually pretty excited that I finally made a card that can be easily mailed, without extra postage. Haha! 
Thanks for visiting today! Please stop by Our Creative Corner to see what the rest of the Design Team has whipped up with Lori's fun challenge. We sure hope you can play along this week. 


Have a great day! :)
