Cute as a Button

This card was made for the Heart2Heart Challenge Theme "ONE" using the Sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #144 

The "One" is for a first newborn, or a 1-Year Old Birthday card, boy or girl.  Left the inside of card open for a Sentiment depending upon what it would be used for.  

For the paper clip I thought I would use a diaper pin instead... although most of you may not remember or know what these are...I think diaper pins are pretty much extinct now and for most a blessing.  Trivia: The first paper disposable diapers were invented in 1948.  The first I used them were back in 1972 when my second son was born, but still needed diaper pins...yikes that's a long time ago.  

I used a colorful design paper that had darker shades of pinks and purples so that the card could be used for a girl or boy.

Your one and only, a first (birthday, milestone, etc.), the number one, or the month of January, the ideas are limitless. We can't wait to see how you interpret this challenge.  Our entire design team is playing this week, so here is our inspiration for you.

It doesn't get any cuter than this! I like the rosy cheeks on the monkey. Although I never had children, I had three much younger siblings and I know what diaper pins are... I remember them well! Colors are pretty, too.

I know what they are but I never used them! My oldest Nephew will be 47 this year and he wore pampers. The card is adorable!

I know what they are...when my son was born 25 years ago I decided that I wanted to use cloth diapers - yeah, not one of my more brilliant ideas. I had a diaper service, but it last just a month. I LOVE your card. That little monkey is just adorable.

Your card is cute as a button :-) Love the coloring on that monkey and the diaper pins are perfect! I had three boys (starting in '78) and did cloth diapers for all....ugh! I enjoy seeing the paper pin, but glad we aren't using those any longer.
