A Baby is....

Another very quick, but colorful post for today!

I always like to play with 'unusual' 
color combos for baby cards.  I get tired of
the same pink and blue pastel themes
(although I still think they are beautiful).

Thought it might be fun to enter this over at
(I don't currently own any Verve : (  but they
are on my wish list for sure!)

So when I want to go bright and bold, I go straight to
Cosmo Cricket!  These papers are from the 'DeLovely'
collection and are really fun.

The sentiment on the die cut tag is from Verses Rubber Stamps,
but it doesn't stop there....

I inked the first portion of the stamp for the front
of the card and finished off the verse for the
inside greeting.
I love when you can do that with sentiments and
Verses stamps offer a wide variety of ways to
do just that.

Through this Sunday, you can get
20% off your entire order
over at Verses!
Just use the coupon code:
in the comment section of your order.'s time to get busy with completing a few
creations with deadlines attached, so I KNOW I
will see you soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I agree with Savvy...never think to use bright colors on a baby card, but that is what babies love! Very pretty, Julie.
