Today's card was made for a co-worker and his wife who celebrated the birth of their second baby girl last week. My co-worker's wife also happens to be my husband's cousin. (Boy, that sounded confusing : ) Aren't small communities great?
I used the Pals Paper Arts PPA24 Simple Sketch Challenge for the layout of my card. I really like this layout and can see myself using it over and over. I did, however, struggle making this card. You see, I don't tend to make very many cards where pink is the main focus. I live in the testosterone sea at my house - even my dog is a boy! So, I don't get an opportunity to make "girly" cards very often. You know what I did discover? I REALLY like making "girly" cards. They're fun. This was also the first time I used the new clear blocks and unmounted stamps from Stampin' Up!. I LOVE THEM! I was instantly addicted!
I'll be back later to post the supplies used for this card. I can tell you that this little card is chocked full of new goodies from the new Stampin' Up! Occassions Mini Catalog!
