LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY

You would all just laugh at me if you knew how much time I spent dwelling over this simple little card! For me, it is pretty boring and needs something else. My problem is that I've tried everything I can think of for that something else! I give up, and it is what it is.

I used Taylor VanBruggen's Cupcake Challenge #56, along with Brocade Blue. I had to dust off my Brocade Blue ink pad -- can't remember the last time I used this color! The main stamped image is from the retired hostess stamp set, Punches Three. The Brocade Blue Patterns Designer Series Paper II is a current Level One Hostess gift. The main image was stamped twice, and the center piece was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

This sketch by Taylor is great too and I think I'm going to have to save if for future use. Love the little pearls you added and you should see my version of boring sometime - it shows yours up any day!!! ;)

Hi, Nancy--

I like the card and don't think it needs "something else." Sometimes the simple cards are the nicest!

Thanks for sharing!
