Welcome Baby

Today's card is for a couple of challenges.  First, the Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge (FTL196) - I really love this layout and it went perfectly with the second challenge.

Here's the sketch from Clean & Simple (FTL196):

And the second challenge is an Inspiration Challenge (IC342) from SCS - My Sweet Muffin.  I choose this blanket from the website to use as inspiration for my card.

And ... here's today's card:

"Welcome Baby"

Stamp:  Short & Sweet, Every Little Bit (SU!)
Paper:  White cardstock (C.C. Designs); Duckies DP and Yellow polka-dot DP (unknown); Bashful Blue polka-dot DP, Bashful Blue striped DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Nestabilities Squares (Spellbinders), Crystal Effects, blender pen, glue, adhesives and dimensionals

I die-cut four Duckie DP and four blue polka-dot DP using the 1" Nestabilities Square die and my Big Shot.

I adhered the squares onto my card base.  Cut out two banners, stamped sentiment and mounted the layers together.  Added the banners on top of the squares, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.

I stamped the duck in basic black ink onto whisper white cardstock and colored it with Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write marker.  I added a little shading with More Mustard SWM and a blender pen.  I cut out the duck and coated it with Crystal Effects to create a 3-D look.  Once dry, I mounted the duck onto the banner and added a strip of blue polka-dot dp to the inside of the card.

Quick and easy card!
