Sweet Baby - Freshly Made Sketches #97

Happy Wednesday to you! Do you know why I love Wednesdays? Because there's a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches to play along with!!

What a fun, clean sketch today by Jen Timko, who by the way I had the pleasure of meeting at Convention :-) I have been a fan of hers since starting to play along at Freshly Made Sketches so I was like WOW!! It's JEN TIMKO!! lol, it was fun to meet her in person and she was a delight to chat with! And with that, here's the card that I created with her sketch:

Doesn't this little guy just make you say "Awwww", yep, he's a keeper! He's from the set "Zoo Babies". I have been dying to ink up this set and this sketch was perfect for it! Do you recognize the Designer Series Paper? No? That's because it is in the Holiday Catalog which goes live tomorrow...yay! It's called "Sweater Weather" and is a wonderful trendy fall-themed paper. But if you have followed me for any time you will know that I delight in taking things outside the box. Fall-themed paper for a baby card? Sure, why not! This paper can be used year round :)

I stamped the giraffe onto my Very Vanilla layer and then stamped it again on another piece and fussy cut him out. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners and I inked it up with Sahara Sand and Crushed Curry markers and then used the Bitty Banners Framelits and my Big Shot to quickly die cut it out. I followd the sketch closely this week so I added a few banners to the top, one in Sahara Sand and the other in Soft Sky. A little bling seemed in order with some Candy Dots in Soft Sky and one Vintage Faceted Designer Button tied up with a bit of Whisper White Baker's Twine finish this card off nicely.

Most of the time I don't like to take the time to fussy cut, but I will when the card calls for it. How about you? I think some people enjoy the process, are you one of them? Won't you leave me a comment and lt me know? Thanks and have a creative day!
