Dynamic Duos #4 - Monochromatic, Baby!

Hello there! It's Saturday and time for the 4th challenge over at Dynamic Duos! This week we are featuring a monochromatic color combo to play along with. Do you have the "blues"? We sure do at Dynamic Duos! But not the "sad and mopey blues", our combo features Bashful Blue and Marina Mist. So pretty!  I've dubbed my card "Monochromatic, baby!" (*said in the Austin Powers voice*...Yeah!)
As soon as I saw this week's sketch over at Mojo Monday, I knew I wanted to use it for a baby boy card with these colors. Love this sketch! I added black and white as my neutrals and used the Subtles DSP paper pad for the patterned paper. 
I colored the baby carriage with Bashful Blue and Marina Mist markers and added some Dazzling Details glitter glue to jazz up the image. That sweet baby face stamp is so cute, I always add that tiny face to the carriage image when I use it. He kind of looks like a sweet version of Stewie Griffin from Family Guy, without the booglie-eyes.  
Here is a shot of the inside of the card, using a quote from the Occasional Quotes stamp set (ret.). That set has seen a lot of ink, for sure. I added some bitty booties to the corner because they were just too adorable NOT to.
Thanks for stopping by today! I sure hope you will join us and play along over at Dynamic Duos this week. Check out the site for the challenge rules and also be sure to pop by and visit the rest of the gals on the Design Team to see what they have whipped up with these colors:

  19. Anne Marie, I love this gorgeous baby card you have created. For some reason I always love things that are framed and matted like this. The colors are beautiful, and so is the card! TFS
