Sweet Little One

Don't fall over from shock or anything, but I'm actually posting a challenge card on the day the challenge posted!  What???  I Know!  Taylor is celebrating 100 sketches today and I wanted to jump right into the celebration.  I haven't made a baby card in a while, so I thought I'd try and start with some pastel Tea Party papers.  I always adore little elephants on baby cards, so I grabbed Elephants In Love and just inked up the larger elephant by masking the rest of the stamp with post it notes.  After I cut this little cutie out, he looked so lonely, so I added some Tiny Twinkles and I love the effect it gives - like he's giving himself a bath in bling, LOL!
 
The sentiment is from Beary Special - I love pairing up different stamp sets, the possibilities are endless!  I used lots of Nestabilities for this card and got a little scallop crazy, haha!  The sketch called for 3 little embellies on the side, but I only had 2 little green buttons left, so I left it as it is.  

Alright - gotta get back to mom life.  Have a wonderful day!
Karen
