We Grew by Four Feet

Hi there!!

Today i'm sharing a card that i made for the current challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. The challenge is a Anything Goes and its their 1st anniversary!! Here is the photo inspiration:

There was a lot of white with little pops of pink and blue, which made me think of babies! So i found some light, almost pastel pink and blue pattern paper. I stamped the little onesie from The Alley Way Stamps Nap Time on the pattern paper. I also stamped a tiny heart in each onesie. I cut them out, colored the hearts with a white gel pen and then set them aside.

Next i die cut several stars from adhesive card stock. I exposed the sticky side and added some glitter. I pressed the glitter into the adhesive, but you still get some that would come off on your fingers, so i added a thin layer of glossy accent to keep everything in place. I let the stars dry over night.

When the stars were dry i placed then all over my white card base. Because the photo has both pink and blue i wanted my card to have these colors too. So i decided to have twins! The stamp set has the sentiment We Grew by Two Feet, well with twins you have another set of feet, so i with a grey pen i crossed out Two and wrote in Four.

I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card base with the stars above it. I added the two oneise with foam dots (plus a little glue to make sure they stayed on the star).

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
