Welcome Baby {MFTWSC133}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 133. Hop over to the MFT Blog to find out how you can play along to win up to $20 to spend at the MFT Boutique.

I created a sweet baby boy card with this week's sketch.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added layers of Berrylicious and Sno Cone. I'm really liking these two blues together! I gave the Sno Cone layer some pattern by stamping the diamonds from Distressed Diamonds using Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink. The Postage Stamp STAX Die-namics were perfect for cutting out the Kraft layer.

The animals in Circus Spectacular are perfect for baby cards and I decided on the elephant. He just works so perfectly because he's facing the right way and his trunk draws your eye up to the sentiment. I used the Circus Spectacular Die-namics to cut him out of Smooth White card stock then I stamped him with Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink.

For the vertical element I used the Retro Squares Die-namics, cutting it from Banana Split and Sweet Tooth card stock. I stamped the Sweet Tooth squares with the small polka dots from Washi Patterns, using Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink.

For the sentiment I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Sweet Tooth flag, then I stamped the sentiment from Baby Onesie with Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

So trendy sweet, my dear! LOVE the color combo, isn't Banana Split just perfect?! The fishtail sentiment piece is perfect. Love how you tied it in with the stitches.
