Blogger's challenge - week 31

I joined in on a blogger's challenge group. This week we were to case the "Welcome Baby" card on page 141 of the Spring/Summer Catalog. When I first started out, I thought that this would be easy....not so much. It was much harder to recreate an exact layout than I thought. I also wanted to use my new rubber. :):)
Here it is:


I started with a base of 3x6 in pretty in pink. I made my own faux wide ribbon by taking a piece of creamy caramel card stock and using my mat pack and piercer to create holes and my white gel pen to create the stitches. Like it?


My sentiment, "Thinking of You" is from Sincere Salutations. I find myself reaching for these sentiments quite often. I like the variety of sentiments in that set. I stamped it in mellow moss onto mellow moss card stock and then pierced the top with the mat pack and piercer. The whisper white strip was created by stamping the row of dots from One of a Kind in creamy caramel.


The medallion was is layered first with the larger circle background stamp from Boho Backgrounds in creamy caramel punched out with my beloved scallop circle punch. I don't know what I would do with out that punch...I use it all of the time! The next two layers are created from my new Boho Blossoms Punch.....I LOVE this new punch!!!!!!! My pink flower was made from stamping the trio of flowers from One of a Kind in pretty in pink onto pretty in pink card stock. That's right....that stamp set is designed to coordinate with this punch as well as the Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper. Can you believe it??????? Anyway...back to the task at hand. The top flower was made by using that same stamp and punch stamping creamy caramel ink onto whisper white card stock. I adhered the two upper flowers together with a pink brad from the soft subtles brad set. That was mounted up on stampin' dimensionals in the center of the medallion.


That should about do it for today....what do you think?

I really liked this card! I jumped right in there and had to make it. Was A challenge to see what stamps I could use to make a similar look -a-like.
