Sweet Baby

Good Morning Everyone!  I have a quick post for you today - I'm still playing with my stamps.  Actually, I decided that I needed to play with my new There She Goes Stamps even though I'm behind a couple of releases.

I just couldn't get my lighting correct with card, no matter what I tried.  The base is white, but the next color is Chocolate Chip and it still looks black to me.  Anyway, I made this card for the TSG Monday challenge which is a 1, 2, 3 challenge: 1 decorative paper, 2 card stock colors and 3 embellishments.  I also used a sweet and simple sketch from Unscripted Sketches.

I created my own digi stamp for this card.  I made the little platform train that the animals are in.  It was really very easy to draw in a drawing program with some basic shapes.  Then I masked it off so that I could stamp the little animals so it appears they are in the wagon-type platforms.

Stamps/Ink:  Polka Dot Pals (TSG), Mini-Messages sentiment (PTI), Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa (Memento), Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal (SU!)
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Whisper White (SU!)
Paper:  Me & My Big Ideas
Copics:  B00, B02, B05, C8, E53, E57, RV10, W-3, Y11, Y15, Y17
Tools:  white gel pen
Embellishments:  buttons (Michaels)

I hope you like my card.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Monday is good to you.

Darling card, Melissa! I love how creative you got with it -- even making your own little wheeled platform for them. It looks like one of those vintage pull-toys that are so sweet. Hugs, Deedee
