As I liked the challenge over at Mary Jo’s, I decided to play along. Mind you, she always has a great challenge, it is just finding the time to play along.
Once I saw the layout, I immediately wanted to use “By the Seaside“, but one of the designers had used it, so it gave me a good excuse to ink up a set that has been sitting on my shelf, but never used.
Not only did it give me a good excuse to ink this set, but I have since checked that I am low on Baby Cards, so it worked out really well.
I’m glad I did, as I am really happy with it.
Since seeing this set, the pram reminds me of one of those old fashioned ones in the “good old days”. I think my brother & sister were wheeled around in one.
After consulting my “Colour Coach” I went for Blushing Bride & Sahara Sand. I love these 2 colours together. To add a little bit of depth, I decided to use Perfect Plum for the greeting/sentiment.
Once I had stamped, cut the pram & layered it onto the card, I decided that the background was a bit bland. As I didn’t want to emboss it, I decided to use one of the stamp sets that I think work great for backgrounds – “Work of Art“. Much happier! Mind you it was a toss up between this one & “Gorgeous Grunge”.
I have used a couple of products that have retired, but you could change them out to current product.
Why not head over to Techno Stamper to check out the Design Teams cards & also the other lovely cards created for the challenge. If you get a spare 5 minutes (boy, do I wish this had taken me 5 minutes) then play along. Thanks Mary Jo for a great challenge!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
