Stamp something @ Our Creative Corner!!

I was trying to be catchy with my title!! I made a single card for these two challenges. The wonderful sketch was from Stamp something and the 2nd challenge at Our Creative Corner is to use at least 1 brad and 1 button!! I actually went with 3 of each!! I tend to work in threes! I needed to make a baby boy card and this is what I came up with. I don't have too much masc. paper but I thought this paper from K & Co. was great!! It gave it a kinda shabby chic look to it!! I love that look and hope she likes it too!! Image is a Sugar Nellie and I colored it in with prismas and gamsol. Today colors worked out great for me. I happened to receive yesterday some Twinkling H2O's and it had this teal color in it so I went over some spots with that. I didn't want the polkadots black so I went through my paint to see the colors I had! (Tip from Artfully Ila) I found this green that matched the polkadot patterned paper perfectly!! (Say that 3 times fast!) I was so excited!! I love when that happens. I also went over the cheeks and ears with the twinkling h2o's and liquid glass. The sentiment was stamped on with individual alphabet stamps from Studio G. The alphabet circle stamp I had laying around!! (Do not know the origin!!) Brads are Heidi Grace and the ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket. I went over some spots with my glitter pen!!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week-end!!

Brilliant card Kathy, the colours that you have used are just perfect...I like the bits of frayed ribbon through the buttons...nice touch, beautiful colouring of your image..with the little bit of shimmer from your h2o's.
You asked if the stars on my card were paper...Yes they are..they are the reverse side of the dp...I just heat embossed the pieces with versa mark and clear embossing powder.
Hugs Rach.xx
