Elegant baby Card

Hi everyone! What a great day...the week is half over and I can see the weekend in sight!! I don't have any huge plans, but I'm ready for some down time after last weekend...I'm still worn out ;)
Today I have 3 challenges that I'm wanting to enter....

For DeNami we were to match 3 in a row and use those elements on our card / project. I've managed to match 3 different ways, lol!! If only I was that good in a real game!!
1) stripes, glitter, ribbon
2) buttons, scallops, ribbon
3) buttons, green (flower leaves), stripes

Paper Sweeties - Baby Celebration
 For Paper Sweeties, they held a fun little baby shower blog hop on WCMD to celebrate the news that Jinny Newlin is expecting and we are asked to make a congratulations or baby themed card

Lawnscaping - Patterned Papers

For Lawnscaping, we are asked to use some of our gorgeous (and usually much horded) ;) patterned papers

Well, here's what I came up with....

We don't know if the baby is a boy or girl and I didn't really want to do the old standby of green and yellows. I decided a little elegant black and cream was the way to go. I used 3 separate patterned papers that I layered (and stamped a sentiment on) before adding my darling little DeNami giraffe and bouquet (made with 2 shades of  Paper Sweeties seam binding, Prima roses and some cute little twine and a black gemstone). I added just a touch of glitter to the giraffe and after a bit of thinking, decided the roses needed a bit of sparkle too. Since I had already attached them to my card I had to use a toothpick to add some Stickles to the petal edges...I wouldn't recommend it, lol, what a PAIN!!

That's it for me today...see ya on Friday :)


  1. Is there such a thing as elegantly sweet!!??!! Well if there is this is it! I love the sweet little giraffe nestled into all of the elegant fluff and frill.

    Thanks for all of your sweet comments, I like it when you stop by ;) As for the Halloween decorations, I do just a bit. I think it makes the front porch look homey and I think our son appreciates that thought even though he's married with a home of his own. He's so sweet, he'll stop by the local produce market and take home cornstalks and pumpkins for his wife, she LOVES fall!! That's MY boy ;)

  2. This is just stunning, Tina! What an elegant and beautiful baby card you've created for the Paper Sweeties Baby Blog Hop challenge :) TFS!!
