A Stylish Challenge!

Hi!
Okay first of all I'm so excited that Betsy's having a challenge!! And what great timing! Our best friends are baptising their cutie Klara this weekend and let me tell you.....she may only be (almost) 4 months.......but she's already a girly girl!!!! So I'll be giving this card to my kobasica along with some gold earings..................and I loves me earings!!!! Some would say that I'm obsessed! ;)

I got my inspiration from the Pottery Barn for kids! I love to look at Pottery Barn for inspiration....they have got such beautiful colours and pattern combinations. Just look at these photos!! I'm a nut for polka dots, gingham and floral patterns!! I also had my daughter in mind doing this card.....she's the reason for all the PINK in this card! I use to hate pink but now I LOVE it!


I really love those sheets (the ones with the trees and owls) and because I'm limited (don't have many stamps as I'm still pretty new to all this but I'm building up a pretty nice collection of stamps) so I used My Cute Stamps SPUNKY NATURE to create a similar pattern..............I think I over did it with all the pattern on this card! he he I drew the tree trunks with brown marker.


I love the photo of the bedding........all the different colours and patterns all layered together! That's how I love my beds! The more pillows and blankets the better!! So I added a lot of layers to my card. My daughter (who is 4) insisted that I put the 'pink diamond' on the top corner!

The blue button is my own handmade fimo button. I took this picture in my daughter's room on her dresser that I painted a yummy shade of yellow! Do you see the framed photo of her behind my card........she was 3 months old and if you're wondering what's on her back.....I put butterflies (not real ones ;)) on her!




Okay, now I really really need to go do some cleaning!! Bye!
P.S. forgot to mention that I drew and hand cut the butterflies.
Pin It!
