Welcome Little One

Hi everyone! I don't submit my work to magazines that often, but when I saw a recent publication call for baby cards in non-traditional colors, I knew I wanted to design a card. I love the use of non-traditional colors. The card wasn't accepted for publication, so I get to show it here. I like the look of white ink stamped on black cardstock. It looks like a vintage chalkboard.

All the stamps for this card come from the very talented Paloma Gomez and Dulces Ideas Clear Stamps. I randomly placed all sorts of sentiments on my acrylic block to create a background stamp. I love this look. I created a similar card here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, how I love those non-traditonal colors! When my son was a baby, I received a black outfit for him with bright red trims and he looked so good in it! Love black for kids; it brings out their features!!! So this card to me is awesome.
