Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #16

Hello Everyone,

Yay! Its time for another color inspiration challenge from Kristina Werner. This time the inspiration came from Martha Stewart (Colors are: Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Soft Sky and Certainly Celery) check out this sweet pic:



I love baby shoes - both my children had such adorable little booties - but that only lasted for about 2 minutes because then inevitably we lost one of the shoes and then couldn't find it till 6 months later - by that time the  shoe was too small for the feet - sigh! but at least we got the important Kodak moment before losing the shoes. 
 Anyhow!! I digress - my point being - that I really loved the colors when I saw this inspiration and since the inspiration came from Martha - in honor of that the paper and ribbon are from Martha Stewart crafts. I also just got my first Stampin Up! Catalog (yes, I am a newbie to the stamping world) (the SU! stamps that I have were given to me by a friend who doesn't craft anymore). Anyhow - when I saw the catalog, I was just blown away - and I mean blown away - I think I just sat on the couch for like...EVER with my mouth open taking it all in!! Wow - I am in love with EVERYTHING! 
 (Do we really need a college fund?!! Just kidding Keith! (to my husband who subscribed to my blog! how sweet is that!!!)
 Anyhow - where was I??? Ahhh, yes the card! I really quite enjoyed making this card after a busy day running around yesterday- phew! it was nice to sit down and enjoy some cutting and stamping! As soon as I saw the colors, I knew I wanted to make a baby card and I knew which stamps I wanted to use and just when I was trying to figure out the layout - I got the SU! catalog in the mail! Perfect timing! I loved the card on pg. 84 and got inspiration from that card to make this one:


I embossed the little clothes onto the different colors and then cut and pasted them onto the card. I also cut a little slit for the ribbon to slide through so that I could tie the bow on the side. I was going to sew the ribbon in - but I am so tired and have no idea where the thread box is - soooo I just decided to slap on some adhesive and call it a day :)
So now I am off to go get breakfast ready and welcome Friday!!! YAY!!

Hope all of you are well,
Ciao for now,
Sankari
