Hi there! I'm SO EXCITED to be the Guest Designer at Card Patterns this week!!! Their sketches are super fun and their DT always provides incredible creative inspiration!!! A BIG THANK YOU to the Card Patterns team for giving me this wonderful opportunity!

Here's the sketch for this week:

And here's my take on it:

I LOVE this patterned paper! It's from the Fine and Dandy: True Blue collection by My Mind's Eye, and I think it's so perfect for baby cards! The little onesie image and sentiment are from DeNami Design---ADORABLE! I just stamped the onesie several times on different patterned papers, cut them out, and used the clothespins to hang them from the twine!

The white portion of the background actually has embossed polka dots on it, which looks really cute with the polka dotty clouds. I wish they would have shown up better in the photos.

Thanks for stopping by today!!! Be sure to check out the Card Patterns Blog to see the FABULOUS samples created by the DT and for all of the details about how you can participate in this week's challenge!
