Betsy Veldman's Sketch Challenge

Don't you just love Betsy Veldman!?! She has the most inspirational blog ~ when you have some time (actually, take lots of time :o) head on over and check out her beautiful creations

I needed another Baby Girl card and wanted to do something "new" --- just love reinventing that wheel. This is 2 of 3 baby girls born to friends --- the third is due in October. Betsy has a wonderful sketch challenge that seemed to be "perfect" for this card. What do you think? Is there enough pink?

My card:
Base card stock is pink marble from Xerox, pink and white stripe and flowery print designer paper from Creative Imaginations.
The sleeping baby bear on a cloud is a felt 3-D sticker from the Dollar store.
The pink heart shaped button is from a package bought at Michael's.
Glittery butterfly, star from my stash.
There is gingham ribbon under the lace and the white ribbon through the button - all from Michael's
Extra Giga scalloped oval punch by Marvy
Sentiment typed on my computer in brown ink
Hmmm, there are NO stamps on this card~it may be a "first" :o)


  1. Awww...look at that sweet little bear! How cute! This is just the sweetest baby card and I am sure the recipient will absolutely love it! Thanks so much for playing along!!

  7. Holy Wow, this is cute, did you about wet yourself to see Betsy Veldman comment?? I know I would have. I love reading your comments and I will certainly be reading your appreciation of David's Military Service to him later. That has got to be a good feeling to know that someone actually sents a personal thank you or sentiment of appreciation vs. a generalized one. Not that that isn't ok too. But thank you for thinking of him/us
