Similar but Different

Yesterday's sketch layout was really quick and easy for me, so I decided to do another in the two new IN COLORS Pacific Point and Baja Breeze. Isn't this baby card just too cute, even though it IS missing Ribbon!? I didn't pop-dot anything (like the center-scallop piece) so additional postage won't be required to send it. I sell cards at a local boutique and although I haven't heard this, but sometimes I wonder if the owner gets complaints about 'additional postage required' on most of my cards.

{ Really no one should complain, since I sell my cards cheaper than Wal-Mart cards on the top shelf where the 'extra special' cards sit. You know, those cards that are for giving to those you 'really DO' care about, HAHA! }

I don't have any of the new Designer Paper by SUP! that incorporates these colors, (at least not YET), so I made my own 'patterned paper by stamping baby images randomly on whisper white cardstock. The baby images are from SUP! Baby Firsts stamp set and the rattle image is from the same hostess set as yesterdays' post; this one is called Cause for Celebration. OH, and the 'welcome' image is from Warm Words stamp set, in case you wanted to know. (That is a really great set; I use it often!) I also inked the white cardstock edges with Pacific Point to give the card a bit of dimension.

I have Tangerine Tango and one of the IN COLORs from the last catalog, Groovy Guava, put aside for the next card. I plan to make a set of 4 to 6 similar cards with this layout and then give them in sets to family members at Christmas!

Have a great day!
AND wish me luck at noon with Isaac!

Both the thank you and this baby card are adorable Nicole. I hope your little guy is doing better about preschool? It's so hard to leave when they aren't happy. I can absolutely relate although I have no advice.
