Cute and Scrumptious

Last evening as I was cruising the blogs, I came across a brand new challenge blog. Literally, they posted their very first challenge yesterday. It is called Truly Scrumptious and if their first sketch is any indication, they will truly live up to that name. I wasn’t feeling up to making a card last night by the time I found the blog though. So, this morning I woke up and as I do every Thursday morning, I surfed over to Cute Card Thursday. Their theme this week is signs of spring. I had the scrumptious sketch right next to me and immediately thought that the two fit perfectly together.

Now, when I think of spring, I think of greens and yellows and flowers and new babies. One of the new Penny Black stamps that I just got last week, just happens to be Baby Hammock, so I was in luck. I also happen to know that one of the ladies I work with is getting ready to have her first baby, so I thought that this would be the perfect time to make a baby card for her. (Are the stars aligning for me or what?!)

Here is the sketch:ts-1

And here is my signs of spring baby card:


I know that my co-worker is not the frilly girly-girl type, so I decided not to include the bow from the sketch and instead went with a small flower, but I think it still works.

Here is the inside of the card:cute-spring-inside

As always, I welcome your thoughts on my card. Thanks for looking.
