SUOC10 Hello Baby!

Good morning, Everyone! Time for another SU-Only Challenge - this challenge is for a baby card. Anything relating to babies... baptism, christening, baby shower, welcome baby...

I have been in love with the sweet pea baby images for a while, but I don't own any. I was particular smitten with this card by Makeesha. So I wondered if I could create my own sweet pea.

I created the larger and smaller tear-shaped pod using oval punches. I glued the Marina Mist pod to Whisper White cardstock and free-hand cut a margin. The leaves were created using the Bird & Blooms die, scored with a stylus, and sponged. I made little curly vines by cutting thin strips of Old Olive cardstock and curling by hand. The stem is also cut free-hand. This was also my first shot at the double-loop bow, as described by Sharon Field.

I used another sneak peek Pacific Point button from the Sale-a-bration Ice Cream Parlor ribbon & button pack.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala DSP; Ink: Marina Mist, Old Olive; Accessories: Sponge, Subtles Collection buttons, Regals Collections buttons, SAB Ice Cream Parlor ribbon & button pack, White satin ribbon, Wide Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Circle Scissors Plus, Birds & Blooms die, Scallop Circle #2 die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread, Mini glue dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
