Welcome Baby!

Happy Tuesday!  I am popping in with a baby card to share today.  I am playing along with a couple of blog challenges today.  
I am playing along with Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday Challenge.  I am playing along with Sunday Stamps Challenge.

I turned my sketch to make an A2 top folding card.
For the PTI Transformation Challenge, I wanted to "redo" this card.

I created similar frame techniques.  On both cards I chose a die cut frame and sponged the top one shade and the bottom another.  I thought the embossed script font on the above card was a bit busy.  I wanted to "redo" the technique with just the ink blending and no added stamping on the frame.

I started with some PTI Select White card stock.  I die cut the Bold Borders: Polka Dot die and ink blended with Rangers Mowed Lawn and Broken China distressed inks.
I stamped and die cut the bear images using Bear Hug stamp set and Bear Hug die set.  I added the balloons using You Make My Heart Soar stamp set and coordinating die set.

I added the frame using Forest Floor:  Spring stamp set and coordinating die set.  I added the sentiment using Penned Elegance II stamp set using enchanted evening and dark indigo inks. I framed out the focal images using Pierced Featured Frames die set.  I used Nuvo Adhesive to fix the images to the card. I added some rosy cheeks with R20 copic marker.  I added some white dot detailing with White gelly roll pen.  I finished my card with some clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
