Well, they were going to be the same...


Today I'd planned to make two baby cards using the same sketch, one pink and one blue... I made the pink version but then when I started to put the blue one together, I had everything except the papers laid out on the white card blank... and for some reason I really liked it how it was and couldn't bring myself to add the papers! So what do you think?  I think bizarrely I prefer the plain version, and I don't usually do much white space!


The sweet images are from Digistamp Boutique, available here.  The papers are downloads from Pink Petticoat - everything, including the images, is printed on linen card, grey cardstock is DCWV.  For the teeny bit of colouring I used promarkers, and then paper pieced the rest.  Flowers cut with a x-cut punch, with pearl centres, sentiment is an Elzybells stamp.  I lightly inked the edges of the images and sentiments with Memento ink.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:

Hiya, both gorgeous and really cute!

I got my kraft card in a closing down sale online, but can't remember the name, not one of the usual shops I use. I only have a couple of sheets left so will be looking for more myself soon.
