Just ducky!

I just love baby cards and truly don't make enough of them! So I decided to bust out a digi (something ELSE I don't use enough) and throw together a cute baby card for one my friends.

I ADORE yellow. In fact my little one wears a LOT of it! LOL! There is just something so comforting about a soft sunshine shade...which is why So Saffron is one of my absolute FAVE colors by Stampin Up...and why I chose it for my card! The gingham paper is something from my stash--and my last piece!

I honestly have NO IDEA where this digital image came from. If it looks familiar to you and you know who designed it, PLEASE let me know in the comments so I can give credit to the designer for this adoreable little guy. I loved using my new EYELET CIRCLE Nestabilities! They are so cute and perfect for baby cards! My son liked being handed the die and asked to poke the tiny paper circles out of it (from the eyelet part). That's just up his alley! LOL!

I used the sketch from this week's Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge...but didn't look close enough to see the circle was supposed to be where the sentiment went. WHOOPS! LOL! But I don't care. I like it just the way it is! I'll enter it anyways and see if I can get lucky and they'll accept it...though I won't be suprised if they don't! My bad!

The sentiment is by Paper Makeup Stamps and can be found by CLICKING HERE. There are a LOT of great baby sentiments by PMS, which is why I used the A New Baby sentiment seen HERE for the inside.
