Baby Shower

Happy Friday! Today's card is for a baby shower I am going to over the weekend. My friend doesn't know what she's having so I tried to make it gender neutral, even though it might be leaning a bit towards being a little boyish. Oh well, I think it came out really cute. I used a bunch of punches to make the little bear. I had done something with this little bear around Christmas. And I thought he would be perfect for a baby shower card. I just wasn't feeling any of the baby stamps I have (which actually isn't too many), so that's why I went with the punch art. You can't go wrong with that. For the colors I used some of the new In Colors, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade. Then I added a touch of yellow with some Daffodil Delight tafetta ribbon. I really like these colors together. I used a new set from the upcoming catalog called Four Frames and stamped that in Lucky Limeade. The sentiment is non SU. I couldn't find anything that I liked that would fit in the oval space. Well, I'm sure I probably had something, I just didn't feel like spending forever looking for a saying. :) For the background, I just punched several circles from Pool Party and glued them. I did this on another card a couple of weeks ago and I like the little extra something it gives. Then I used the lattice texture embossing folder on the Lucky Limeade piece. I hope my friend likes this little bear!
I will be participating in this month's Control Freaks Blog Tour so be sure to stop back on Monday the 20th! We will be showcasing products from the Summer Mini and some sneak peeks from the new catalog. You won't want to miss all of the fantastic projects the girls have lined up! Have a great weekend!
