Happy New Baby

As I mentioned yesterday, my first graduation card attempt was not so hot. I used Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration #35 colors which are lovely together, but made this card look like it's for a little girl's kindergarten graduation or something. Since I don't know any kindergarten girls, I needed to change it up.

Speaking of Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration, check out this week's challenge for yourself! She's giving away blog candy in celebration of 50,000 hits!

Luckily because I used Stampin' Dimensionals, I was able to dissect the card and create two separate cards instead! Since the color palette is so feminine, it worked perfectly for a former coworker who just had a baby girl. I made another graduation card from the remnants, which I’ll post tomorrow. Once again, I used the layout from Weekend Sketch Challenge #79. I wish I would have put ribbon across the Cameo Coral strip, but now I'm just driving myself nuts. I'm gonna mail it off before I try to change anything else!
