Pretty in Pink


Diva Charmaine was this week's sketch provider and I must admit when I first saw this sketch those corner tabs didn't sit well with me - sorry Charmaine!  However, once I started working with it, things came together quickly and the corners weren't even an issue.  That will teach me for getting my nickers in a knot before trying the sketch LOL!

I needed a baby girl card, and the oval shape made me immediately think of this cute little Denami baby as she was the perfect size.  Two types of Making Memories DP, a frilly fru-fru lacy Nestie, some pearls and a few touches of yellow and I was happy with the outcome.

Think I may just have to try making this in a baby boy version so I have one of each on hand.  That way when Keesh lets us know if she had a boy or girl,  I can pop one in the mail to her right away.

Cute baby card! What I love best is the yellow flower in the corner. Such a little addition makes such a big impression on this card!

Seriously?! I would never have guessed that you had second thoughts about this sketch - you've used it beautifully! Love the card - it's just perfect and your use of the nesties with the pearls always has my attention!

Always a great idea to have one of each ready to go, what a great card and those corner tabs worked perfectly. I hear ya though on using something you are not quite sure of... :)
