Die Cuttin' Divas Baby Challenge


We've had a lot of new things happening at our house lately.

My younger daughter moved back in with us while she goes back to school to get her masters degree.

Its been fun having her back home for awhile.

This weekend she adopted a new puppy from a local shelter. He is 2 months old and so cute. We are having a lot of fun with him, although our two dogs aren't so sure about him.

Since it is Tuesday so we have a new challenge for you over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

This week our challenge is Baby!

Keep Shining Bright



Just popping in on this Saturday afternoon to share a card I created for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches



For my card I decided to play with elements from the August Simon Says Stamp card kit.





I choose the giant polka dot paper, I thought it was so fun! I matted it in blue card stock and added a gold star that I cut out with the die included in the kit.





The sentiment is from the stamp set included in the kit and I stamped it with Versamark and used Blue embossing powder. I added a twine bow with some gold and white twine I purchase through Pick Your Plumb.







Supplies used: card stock - white, blue; patterned paper by Pebbles; die by Simon Says Stamp; gold paper by Bazill; stamp by Simon Says Stamp; twine - Pick Your Plumb; Versamark stamp pad; embossing powder from my stash: Pop Dots.


Thanks for stopping by!
