Ahoy, Sailor.

A fun baby card for a bouncing baby boy. I love so many of the elements on this card but my favorite is probably the ric-rac waves. I've been trying to give a lot of thought to 'theme' lately - using less products and creating cohesiveness by repetition... I seem to get a cleaner result.

I've got a little stockpile of projects ready to share with you, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of participating in challenges. Plus, we MUST have a Sassy Season of holiday goodies on the way, right? ;)

Stamps: PTI Bitty Baby Blessings, SU Woodgrain Background; Paper: SU Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, and Bashful Blue; PTI Rustic Cream and Distressed Dots; Tools: PTI Mat Stack 3 and Large Ric-Rac dies, 1 3/4 Circle Punch; Sassy Somethings: PTI Fine Linen Buttons and Orange Zest Topnotch Twill

OMG what a stroke of genius !!! I use my scallop punch but this looks much more realistic! ANd I also love how the matstack image frames your focal point - just beautiful card overall!!

What a clever use of the wood grain stamp! I like that stamp so much but never think outside the box of using it as a background. Thanks for the inspiration. (and nice to see you posting again)
