The Kraft Journal: Babies or Brides Challenge

Hello my friends,

It's another week over at The Kraft Journal Challenge.  We were asked to create a project either Baby or Bride Theme.  I chose Baby since I don't know anybody getting married anytime soon!

My card:

The base of the card is Pretty in Pink, followed with a piece of white cardstock added on top.  I embossed it with Seeing Spots folder.  I then added a strip of kraft cardstock on the bottom, embossed that piece with SU! Delicate Designs.  Taking center stage is a knitted baby sweater.  I added toothpicks to assimilate knitting needles.  I mounted the sweater on oval cut out with Spellbinders Classic Oval Dies.  For my finishing touch, I adhered a pretty pink bow to the sweater.

I'm also participating over at Word Art Wednesday and Link Up Tuesday.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
