Sweet Baby Dreams

We are having a perfect Spring weekend here in New England! Warm, breezy, and sunny! I would love to be working out in my garden but our yard in full of trucks, workers and equipment! With all this rain around here it has been hard for the concrete footing to be poured so today is the day!!

This baby card is for a very good friend at school. She is having her second child and it is a boy so I wanted to make sure I used lots of blue. There is also lots of sparkle because she is always remarking about loving the cards with sparkle and shine that I create. This image is one of my favorite Dustin Pike digi images. It makes the cutest baby card I think.

Here is a close-up so I could try to show all the sparkle!

Here are some fantastic challenges that fit this card

Bee Crafty Challenge #30-This challenge is to have a something new theme like new baby, home, life together. New baby works!!!!

Cupcake Craft Challenge 90-The challenge this week is to use lots of "buttons". I love these new glitter buttons I bought.

My Time To Craft Challenge #91-TOO CUTE! This challenge is to create a card that is cute. I think this bear is adorable!

Papertake Weekly Challenge-Shiny, Sparkly, and Special is the challenge. To make a card that really sparkles using anything you like. I used glitter, pearls, and sparkly buttons.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 112-The challenge this week is to create a card for someone special. I created this card for a close friend and their new baby that is due very soon!

Hand Full of Stamps Challenge HFOS #28-"Get Your Shine On" is the challenge. I did my shine with glitter and embellishments.

ABC Challenge-The letter for this challenge is U for unused stash! I seem to have lots of unused stash because I love to buy new things. My unused stash is the blue dotted ribbon, the blue DP. I was hoarding them because it is the last of it and I like them both so much.

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 30-This is a fun challenge, you need to have a round card or something round on your creation. I used my circles embossing folder and my image is round!
