Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #10

Here is the Color Inspiration #10 that Kristina Werner posted on her blog. When I saw the colors I thought two things - (1.) these are all of my favorite colors! and (2.) that it would make the perfect Baby Boy card!  So I went to work and this is what I came up with.

Color Inspiration colors:  Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, So Saffron and Not Quite Navy

I made yet another 4 x 4 card for this Color Inspiration - I don't know why, it just seems that I am really digging the square cards lately.  Any-who, I used the Bashful Blue as the card base and stamped little Safety Pins from the SU - Short & Sweet Set as the background. I just layered the So Saffron and Old Olive DP on top of that.  I distressed the edge of the So Saffron so it would look "soft".  Next I put dimensionals on the back of the Not Quite Navy and added the Old Olive Poly-Twill ribbon (I absolutely LOVE this ribbon - I may need to buy more and hoard it before the Occasions Mini is GONE!).  Then on the Whisper White, I stamped the image from the SU - Big on Spring set in Not Quite Navy.  I wanted the "CUTE" to stand out a bit so I use my Aqua Painter and Bashful Blue ink to color in the letters then I stamped the onesie on Bashful Blue DP.  I cut it out and then adhered it with the dimensionals too.  After all that - THIS is how it looks!  I am happy with it!

Thanks for looking and ENJOY!

This is so CUTE, but its not too busy either! Recently I have made SO many "baby" cards for friends (it must be something in the water ;) and this is by FAR the cutest one that I have seen so far. And it completed it for me that the onsie is hanging on a hanger! What a great detail!
