Georgie Hush Little Baby

When I viewed the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #127 this morning, my immediate thought was to use the Elephant PaperPak "Georgie" and a sentiment of Tons of Fun.  Well it didn't turn out anything like I had planned in my head because when I looked at the the Complements for this paper I fell in love with them and decided to make a fairly clean and simple card.  

After I cut the papers to match the sketch, I added the two elephants and the "Hush, Little Baby" using 3D Thin Tape to raise them from the banners.  I used my Stitch Guide and pieced holes in my card and then hand-stitched with turquoise thread.  It still needed something, so I cut out some of the centers of the circles from the paper and adhered them with 3D Thin Foam Tape so they popped from the design paper. Using the cricut I cut out the Artiste label and stamped the sentiment.  The soft colors made it a perfect Congratulations Baby Card.  

I spent more time on the initial thought process of what I thought my original plan was, then I did on making this card, and it's only noon here in Arizona (MT).  Lucky day, I'll have time for another card.

We live in Buckeye, AZ west of Phoenix. Where are you located? I know you must be south AZ because you mentioned it hot for running.

Sweet card, Sue. I like your use of the "buttons" on the pretty coordinating paper.

It's funny how an initial idea can end up turning into something entirely different. I love what you did and I am a huge fan of stitching on cards. This is just gorgeous and a perfect baby card for some lucky little one and his/her mommy. Beautiful! Thanks for joining us at AHSC!
