Oh BABY!!!

Okay…before any body gets any crazy ideas, this is NOT an announcement.  A friend needed a baby card for a shower.  That is all.

Now.  I simply can not get over this color combination.  It is so sweet and soft and yummy.  Was that weird?  Sorry.

Back to the card…these colors are Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, and Soft Suede.  All by Stampin' Up!

The base is SU Whisper White.  I ran the pink pirouette card stock through my Big Shot with my tiny dot embossing folder and then used my corner rounder punch on the corners.  That elephant stamp is from the SU Patterned Occasions stamp set.  Under the elephant, it has text that reads "thanks a ton" but I didn't really think that was necessary for a sweet lady having a baby.  So, I just used my markers to color the elephant instead of inking him up with an ink pad.  I used soft suede on his body, certainly celery on the flower stem, and pink pirouette on the ear and flower bud.  I then punched the image out with the Decorative Label Punch and popped it up with dimensionals.  The sentiments are from Sweet Essentials stamp set.  I used the Modern Label punch to punch out "hello, baby" and then I jazzed up the front with some green baker's twine and clear buttons.  I love to use Glue Dots to stick buttons onto cards.  They do a great job of holding on.  

That's it for now.  What do you think?  :)
