Sweet Baby

The biweekly challenge is up on the blog at Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #505. This challenge runs from Tuesday, May 4, through Sunday, May 16, 2021. This is a sketch challenge with the option to use pastel colors. 

I decided to use one dark color (constellation map) along with the pastel colors I chose but essentially my card has pastels in pink, blue, lavender, and yellow. The images were die-cut in white cardstock and I added color with Copic markers. The baby's blanket was done with paper piecing. The strip for the blue banner was embossed for texture. The sentiment was also die-cut from white cardstock along with a second cut from the constellation map paper. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with additional die-cut elements. I kept the card low profile for ease in mailing.

Please visit our blog at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and join the challenge.
