Children Are a Heritage - SNSDC66

We moved to our permanent housing last week and we're still getting settled.  I was able to dig out a few of my supplies to work on this week's Sweet 'n Sassy Digi challenge. It was fun to take a break from the unpacking.  This week we have a color challenge -- use purple and green.  This is not a common color combo for me so it was a challenge.  :)



One of the benefits of digi stamps is that you can layer them before printing them out.  I layered the verse from the Baby Blessings digi set on top of the Baby Buggy digi (retired).  I used my copics to color parts of the Baby Buggy digi and paper pieced the blanket part with white.  I outlined the blanket with a copic before gluing it down.  Some stickles on the hearts added a little sparkle.  I used an M'bossabilities folder on the purple cardstock and now I'm really wishing I'd matted it with some of the green cardstock.  For those I've mentored...yes, I broke my own rule and didn't mat.  Oh well.....

I added pearls around the outside of the image panel and to the flower centers in the embossed panel.  A ribbon across the top borner finished off the front.



For the interior, I used the same outside design but didn't add any pearls.  I really like this sentiment from the Baby Blessings set.  I goofed and signed the card before taking the picture. Sorry about that.

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Recollections (white), Bazzill (purple, green)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Baby Blessings, Baby Buggy-retired)
Embellishments/Tools:  Ribbon (Offray), Spellbinders (Standard Circle Large & Small, Lacey Circle, M'Bossabilities Splended Side A embossing folder), Pearls (SU), Copics (YG03, YG05, V04, V06, V09, Colorless Blender), Stickles (Crystal)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

52 Card Pick up #32 - make a card

I hope you'll play along with us this week.  Thanks for stopping by today.
