MOJO32 SKETCH CHALLENGE BABY BOY

My card today uses Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch #32. It's difficult to tell in the photo, but there are three Bashful Blue Brads on the left side with Whisper White CS 1/4" Circles underneath. The star medallion from In the Stars stamp set is three layers, with the top star layer popped up with dimensionals. The baby onesie from the stamp set, By Ones & By Twos is paper pieced on Bashful Blue Prints DP (Level One Hostess). I did not intend to include the Styled Silver Hardware in my original design, as I wanted to stay as true to the sketch as possible ... BUT that Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Bashful Blue layer seemed too empty, and the card was bottom-heavy. The word "BABY" from Fundamental Phrases is stamped in Bashful Blue onto Whisper White, and punched with the Small Oval Punch underneath the hardware. RECIPE
Stamps:
By Ones & By Twos, In The Stars, Fundamental Phrases

Paper:
Bashful Blue Prints DP (Level One Hostess), Whisper White and Bashful Blue CS

I love this! The "hardware" was a great touch I think...it gives it a little extra pop. Great card.
