Fab in Pink!

My DD's dance instructor is pregnant with her first baby. This stamp set by Mabelle is so cute! It's called How Swell and has some of the funnest sentiments for pregnant women. I'm not sure if her baby is a boy or girl yet, but her studio colors are pink and black. That became the color scheme for my card. I also wanted to try out this free download-me paper from TAC, found here, and try it on colored paper. I've seen some cool stuff done with altering the colors of the printer ink on Laurie's blog. Very cool how she did that! I was dying to see how it would do on colored cardstock. This card was a perfect opportunity to try it out. It allowed me to print what sheet I wanted, there's five sheets that you can down load. I love the dots, and the swirls on this one sheet.

I based my layout on Mojo Monday's layout, which I made earlier this week. I didn't want to cut up the paper I had just made, so I ran the ribbon down the middle to mimic the split center. The rest of the layout is the same from the sketch. I added shimmerz to her shirt, ribbon on the hat, and big flower. I cut out the hat in three sections and layered it flat with two way glue. I also discovered I had the prefect corner punch for the nesties I used. It punched the end out just so and framed out the corner made by the nestie. I'll be using that one again with that set of nesties!
Other supplies: prima flowers, water color crayons-SU bold brights, and TAC Lyra pack of 48, SU Pixie pink cardstock, PTI black. cardstock.
