Its time for another challenge! This past week I participated in the first ever challenge for the Fab Friday Blog and I’m at it again with their second ever challenge! I wanted to create an unconventional card. I got to thinking the other day, why not make a baby card that isn’t the stereotypical blue or pink? Why not make it fun and different?!
This weeks challenge was a color inspired theme. I haven’t used So Saffron very much and it seems to be coming up more and more in the challenges. I think its a sign I need to invest in the ink pad 🙂 The challenge can be found at http://fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com. Heres the challenge:
I also wanted to do another sketch challenge to help me become more inspired. I have not participated in a Freshly Made Sketches challenge and in celebration of their blog being one year old, they allowed us to chose any challenge from over the past year. Their blog challenge can be found at http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com. I chose #23, this sketch challenge:
Here’s what I came up with:
I love the way it came out! This card is gender neutral and can be used for anything baby such as a recent birth, a pregnancy announcement or even an infant birthday card. I used Sahara Sand ink on the crib and sponging around the banner and Basic Gray ink on the banner stamp!
