Sweet Little One

I needed a baby card for a friend who recently had a little girl, so I decided to use this week's sketch challenge for it. I don't have any traditional baby stamps, so I pulled out my Papertrey Little Lady set that I haven't used in awhile. I tend to like wood mounted sets better, but I do like the quality and versitility of the two Papertrey sets I have.

I started with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock folded in half for my card base. To that, I layered a 5 1/4 x 4" piece of Whisper White that was stamped with the small flower in Pretty in Pink and Purely Pomegranate and the Polka Dot in Basic Black. The middle strip of Pretty in Pink was scalloped using the SU! corner rounder. I added Black Gingham ribbon and Vintage brads to that piece as well.

For the focal image, I stamped the lady bug body in Pretty in Pink and her spots in Basic Black. I stamped her body a second time, cut it out and covered it with Crystal Effects. The trail was stamped in Basic Black. This piece was then layered on Basic Black and Purely Pomegranate.

The "sweet little one" sentiment is from Holidays & Wishes.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out. It's always nice when the image in your head actually turns out the same on paper. This was a really fun sketch, and I'm sure I'll be using it again!
