Love Stephen Joseph Gifts




This card is for 3 challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Color inspiration picture
ODBDSLC43 - Use something new (DP and birdcage stamp) and something old (lace, SU set)
IC266 - Stephen Joseph Gifts
Well, I just loved all the fun products for infants and children in the Stephen Joseph Gifts website! Now all I need are some grands to buy for - lol! I chose this flower bib for my subject/theme inspiration and then Maria's gorgeous picture was my inspiration for the colors. Michael's has a new Kelly Panacci die-cut pad by K&Co that already has the bottom shape cut out for you...makes it so easy to put a card together! I also found this adorable little birdcage stamp in the dollar bin at Mike's, which I cut out and popped with foam dots. I hung the cage on a branch from SU's versatile Thoughts & Prayers set, then I added small punched flowers with gold pearls added to the centers. I had a small piece of lace that was just enough to add in the BG. There you have it...one card...three fun challenges! Have to work this afternoon, so no more play time for me. Enjoy your weekend!
