JustRite Friday Challenge #102: Color Inspiration

I couldn't help but think baby when I saw JustRite's current color inspiration challenge and since I LOVE Samantha Walker's Buntings and Banners acrylic stamps, I just had to create a sweet baby card!

I stamped my two banners and die cut using JustRite's coordinating Buntings and Button dies. I then stamped 'sweet baby!' along the banners using JustRite's retired Times New Roman 50 point font. My banners are attached using little sheer pearl-centered bows that my sweet sister-in-law kindly sent me. They were among my beloved MIL's crafting stash, but she's turning 97 the last day of August and isn't able to sew or craft any longer. I think this card will have to go to someone on my DH's side of the family!

My focal sentiment and button again from Buntings and Banners are matted from the bottom up on Card Creator A2 Matting Basics B, A2 Locking Loops and Resplendent Rectangles. I then added strips of baby rick-rack colored with Copic Y13 to pull in more yellow, pop-dotted the button next to my sentiment and finished up with the pink tulle and ribbon bow and a tiny pacifier from my stash.

Oh Dear! I could just copy and paste the first line of your post right on to mine, and the similarities don't quite end there!! Hey! Great minds, right? The colours said baby to me and JR just sent me that cute set!
I like how you put the lettering on the banners(I didn't think of that)and I LOVE that you used something personal on this sweet card.I think that just makes it so much more special, and those blue bows are PERFECT on this too!
