hello baby! 2S4U Laura's #30

here's a card i made for Laura's sketch #30 over at 2sketches4you. i haven't gotten to play recently, but i'm always checking their blog for the new DT's cards as well as all the submissions... everyone has such eye candy!

as i said in yesterday's post, i made some cards for my cousin's wife, Marcella, who is expecting a baby in August. i wanted to give her some thank you cards to use for those sweet girly gifts she'll be getting soon (they're having a girl--SO excited :D haha). anyway, i wanted to include a cute card just for her, and i just love how easy Laura's sketch was, yet how perfect this card turned out :D

i love the scalloped edge (a Martha Stewart punch) and the layered flower... it's a combination of Cricut cuts, leather flower (from a specialty ribbon cut at Jo-Ann's), and a big pink Prima flower topped with a super cute Making Memories brad :D

oooooh, and that sentiment? it's a Studio G stamp from Michael's i got for $1! i love the font/ design/ clean-ness... i just know i'll be using it a ton! i added the heart to the "O" and then stamped the "baby!" in with my mini alpha stamps. that flower behind the "Hello" is an Impress stamp that i LOVE (from my friend Paulina, who just got featured on a blog--way to go girly!), and the heart is filled with DeNami Design glitter in one of my fav. colors--PINK :D
i always love playing with black, white, and another color, so the houndstooth paper was perfect for this project :D loving every bit of it, basically! (did you notice my cool new colored staples? Making Memories again... these were at the suggestion of my sister, Cecelia.)
well, thanks for looking, and leaving your comments :D i love reading them and they're so encouraging! don't forget to enter the card giveaway HERE if you haven't already (or just click on the link in the sidebar)... giveaway ends this Friday night. have a great Tuesday!
