Its time for another My Time Made Easy Challenge! This time the theme I chose was a Baby Card. I wanted to make a traditional baby card using pretty pastel shades but the Digi Image I chose just didn’t shout out traditional to me. Once I finished I had no clue what style I used. After pondering over it I think I can say its more like a Rustic Victorian style (Is there such a style?). I like the end result and I hope you do too. I would love if you left a comment to let me know what you think.
NOTE: I didn’t follow the sketch exactly this week because my mind’s eye kept going in a different direction for some reason. The only difference is the top portion of the card & the doily. Sometimes this happens but the important thing is that you like the end result.

I used the cutest Digi Set to make my card this week. Both the baby carriage and sentiment are from the same set. There are 27 images in this set! Click here to see the sketch (Pretty Patterns Sketch #8) for this week and all the beautiful creations from my other team members.
To complete my card I also used digi paper from my personal files. I came across the beads & charm that match closely to the digi paper & decided to string them and attach to the bow. The doily was created using a die. And the baby carriage is matted using a spellbinders die. I wanted to create a different edge for the digi paper on the top portion of the card so I cut narrow strips and fan folded them to get the ruffle look. I was going for the look of the top portion of the baby carriage when opened up. And I used lots of pearls & stickles to give the card some bling.
