Baby Card

 I mixed the Mojo #189 Sketch Challenge with the Color Throwdown #140 colors to create this whimsical baby card. The new Valise papers from Memory Box are based on kraft paper. Love the colors in the papers and they fit perfectly with the challenge colors. I decided to pair it with the fun Memory Box Bubble Gum dots paper.



The sweet elephant and balloons are from Memory Box. Memory Box has dies now!  I used one of the new dies to create the scalloped doily border. They cut like a dream.

Here is a list of all the products: Memory Box: Valise, Bubble Gum Dots, Dies - Pearl Lace, Little Banner, Mama and Baby Combo, Balloon Bundle, Thank You Combo, Nestabilities Lacy Circles, Watercolor Pencils, Glitter, Memento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink, Black Versafine Pigment ink

I was inspired to try a second card using Stella Rose papers:



Here is the lovely sketch:
Hope your week is going well!
