It's A Boy!

Thursday, April 3, 2014

 Hi there! I'm down to the wire on the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge this month, and I still have another card to post for it, so I'll be very brief.
This is a new baby card for a boy. I used the colors of the dp to guide me in choosing all the other colors and elements. I colored the word, "boy," with Prismacolor pencils. The cluster of embellies is made up of a flattened bottle cap, some gears, flags, and a "baby" zipper pull. The "dirty" gear was die cut from kraft cs, then heat embossed with silver ep. To achieve the rusted/dirty look on the gear, I inked up just a portion of the silver embossed gear with Versamark, then I sprinkled Distress EP on one edge of the gear.
The inside.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week!

Super cute, Cheryl! It just couldn't be better for a new baby boy. All those fun elements you added suggest things to come in the raising of a boy. I love it!
