Stampin B''s #17 Challenge Square Baby Card - No Blue or Pink

Baby cards alone are a challenge to me, but add in the square quality and wow, did Nicole ever pick an out of the box challenge for me. However, I must admit that this particular card took on a life of its own and I do LOVE it. The image and the sentiment (inside) come from a very old SU set. The designer papers are from a Martha Stewart WalMart paper pad, and then I used white, black, and saffron cardstock. I did a lot of piercing, added some SU twill celery ribbon, silver hodpodge, a layered bloom, and a charm. Used my oval petite Nesties for the image. And that is about it.....fairly easy, but I do think it packs a punch for a baby card. What do you think????

Now be sure to go to the Stampin B's blog to check out the work of the other team members and find out how you can join right in on this challenge.

Have a fabulous day!!!
