Baby's Cards - You always need one more!

My kids are now 5 and 8 and I am done having babies. Most of my friends are done having babies and my Husband and I are the youngest in our families, therefore, no more nieces or nephews for us!  I think!!

It seems however I am always in need of just one more baby card!  A family friend of mine just had a little boy (in fact I used to babysit her when she was 3!  I am feeling a little old!) and another Stampin' Friend is due in November.  So as I said there is always need for another baby card. 

When I surf Pinterest I pin a lot of baby cards that catch my eye, I then proceed to forget about them and when I need a baby card I am rushing to get one made.

Not this time!   I saw a Digital Studio card on Pinterest with this little Fisher Price toy on it and thought I could create that with my Word Window punch!   I literally shut my computer, walked into my craft room and went to work!  I love it when that happens.  And I really love how this turned out! 

Let me know what you think.

I used the standard Primary Colours for this card, Real Red, Pacific Blue, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.  I did Clear Emboss the punched pieces to make them look more plastic and I really like how the effect worked.   The Paper I used for the toy is last years Brights Pack DSP.

The Sentiment at the bottom is a combination of about 5 or 6 sets.   I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make it look like word art.  This will be for a boy but it could have just as easily been made for a little girl.

Well I guess it is time to get back to Pinterest.  I need more ideas like this!

Thanks for looking!
