I went to a baby shower yesterday for a mommy who will be moving cross-country shortly after the baby arrives. I didn't want to get a gift card and that's it, so I got a little blue stuffed puppy dog to kind of "hold" the gift card and make it look cuter. Then, of course, I thought that I should make a card with a puppy on it too, and Sketch Challenge 103 immediately popped into my head so this came together really fast.
Puppy is stamped in Stazon and watercolored with ink pad lids in Bashful Blue and Brocade Blue. He really does kinda look like the stuffed animal. I've had scraps of this Hot Off the Press star paper for years so I thought it would go well on this card. I think the "Yeah, baby" stamp is about the funniest one *ever* so I had to use it along the bottom. Add some brads and Voila! I was pretty tickled with how it turned out. I originally had it attached to a Barely Banana card base but I decided I liked it better on Bashful Blue.
