Fusion #17: Sketch Challenge

My DD & co-worker needed a baby card for another co-worker, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to play in the Fusion Challenge. It's so unique because you can either use just the provided sketch or just the provided inspiration photo or combine BOTH for 'fusion' -- clever, huh?!  ;-)

I went with the sketch for my first entry and created a very simple baby boy card using bright primary colors. The ribbon I wanted to finally use featured various vehicles on twill tape, so I chose the 'little tyke' sentiment, stamped onto my inside layer and then die cut a Spellbinders (retired) rectangle to create the opening to view it through. 'Welcome' was then stamped onto another rectangle die from the same set, backed with red CS and attached at top left.

I like the way the letters in these Inkadinkado Baby Boy stamps are kinda off-kelter and all lower case, which makes me think a small tyke wrote them! I added a bright striped paper from DCWV's Nana's Kids below that fun Jillibean Soup ribbon.

Another fun thing about this challenge is that anyone (participants & non-participants alike) can vote for their three favorite cards for 24 hours after the challenge closes. This is a new challenge concept for me, but I think it will be fun to see the results!

So cute! I am a big fan of stripes, and that paper is so pretty and that ribbon, well, I need some of that! I like the style of this card. I may love fussy and fancy,but sometimes you just need trucks!

CUTE card!!! I love the little window look you've created, and your ribbon/paper combo look sweet together...especially for the theme of your card! I hate to say it, because the voting did make for a little extra fun, but we've had so much trouble with it, we're going to have to discontinue it:( I do hope that won't keep you away, though...we really appreciate you playing along at FUSION with this sweet creation!
