Sugar and Spice

Today I am playing along with a sketch challenge that is new to me, I Spy.  I saw a very cute card on my friend Jeanne's (A Kept Life) blog and an idea popped into my head using some sweet Serendipity baby stamps.  First, here's the I Spy Sketch #32 that my card is based on.

Serendipity Stamps Bitti Feet Baby Booties Baby Bib Etc Straight Moon Border
I've made quite a few baby boy cards lately, and today it was time for something pink.  I cut some Papertrey Ink Pinked Squares in sweet blush, aqua mist and rustic white.  The background patterned papers are by Crate Paper, Little Bo Peep collection.  Now onto the stamping.  I used 5 different Serendipity stamps to make this card.  The little pink baby feet are Bitti Feet, very easy to make a cute piece of patterned paper.  The rattle is pieced from Baby Bib, etc and popped up with dimensional foam.  The booties are Baby Booties, small  and have been shaded a bit with copics.  The sentiment is called Sugar and Spice and can be purchased separately or together as a part of Baby Girl Cling Set.   You can't see it very well in the picture, but the bottom right pink block has a cute moon and star border stamped on it (Straight Moon Border), also from Serendipity stamps.  The roses are from I AM Roses, a gift from my friend Jeanne whose card inspired me to try this challenge.  The diecut behind the sentiment is by Spelldinders (IronWorks).  This was a fun card to make and I bet it could be made in shades of blue, brown and kraft to make it perfect for a baby boy card too.


Oh Cathy, this is so sweet! I love the pinket squares, and how each part has a different little "scene." I love that double bow you created and those little feet are too cute :)

Cathy this is so so pretty. Love your stitching and those pinked squares.
