Squeaking In

With less than two hours to go for the current Curtain Call Challenge, I actually have a card. I finished it yesterday, but had so much going on that I had to wait to post it until this morning. So will cut to the chase, no chatter this morning.

And mine in non-traditional colors:

Neenah white base, with a scrap of dp, and scraps of orange and green. The onsies stamps are from Newtons Nook, the sentiment from SU. Black SU ink, and Copic markers on the onsies. Red, blue and orange sequins, and a bit of KF twine for the clothesline. The frame was cut with an MFT die.

And while I'm here, I might as well add the second card. One for The Card Concept Challenge. Using a chipboard butterfly, I kept this one simple. Not CAS, but more clean and layered...I think.

And my butterfly looks like this:

Again a Neenah white base, a Gina K. woodgrain textured panel, three little pearls, a scrap of green ribbon, a PTI sentiment and some Ranger green ink. EZPZ. I don't remember who made the butterfly, sorry. It really looks pretty irl. So before I'm off and running AGAIN today, happy dances everyone.

Great cards, Bev!! Really love how you mimicked the circles on your patterned paper with the sequins. And your muted butterfly is beautiful!

Love this- it's so refreshing to see a baby card that's bright and beautiful rather than just pastel ( altho there's def a place for pastel new baby cards!). Your blog always makes me smile! x

These cards are adorable! I was checking out the Curtain Call challenge entries and just love what you created with the bright and colorful onsies and the sequins above them! So cute. Your butterfly card is pretty too - love the curve along the bottom!

Such cute adorability in your first card, Bev ... love the DP ... looks as though it should be edible it's so delicious! Perfect paired with those sweet onesies! The butterfly is quite simply elegant, elegant, elegant ... such soft, subtle colours brilliantly complemented by the ribbon and pearls ... lovely! Hugs, Anita :)

Beautiful choice of colors. I love the softness of your card and that beautiful butterfly. So glad you were able to join us at The Card Concept.

I love your vivid baby colors! Personally, I am so not a pastel person that it's hard for me to do sweet, pastel baby cards. Plus, I've always thought that the bright, cheerful colors were really what new parents needed!! Great job!

Speaking of pastels(!) - the butterfly is so elegant! I love the curve highlighting the sentiment - a lovely touch!
