Card Pattern Sketch #106

I was blog-surfing for a sketch because my crafty mojo has gone away - how sad :o(

Card Patterns always has the neatest sketch challenges, you can join in the fun here:
The Design Team is so talented and inspirational. Check out my sweet blog buddy Amy Tsuruta at: ~~ I didn't need to look any further.

This card is for my cousin and his wife who just had their first baby.
I stamped the carriage on two different patterns and cut them out to paper piece it.
Thought this came out pretty cute?

My card ~ click on the image for more details

Cardstock: Blue base card is from Bazzill; Patterned papers are from Zoophabet 2
Stamps: Sweet Pea Baby cling set from Stampabilities
Ink: Sepia from Ranger Archival Ink: outlined carriage with a gold glitter gel pen; sentiment from my computer
