This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is based on another one of the marvelous Margaret Moody's sketches and it came in very handy for the card I wanted to make for my son's Nana. My little rugrat is currently obsessed with the color yellow and in particular loves to wear yellow shirts. Nana sent him three new shirts (with denim shorts so his diaper doesn't show!) for his little man wardrobe and they inspired me for this thank you card.
I wanted the card to feel like a kid's outfit without being girly. I used a denim background stamp and cut out three bitty T-shirts from yellow cardstock. I added a "sentiment" on each with some dimensional pearls to simulate puffy paint and included a red paper heart. Some fun yellow stitching and a couple navy blue buttons finished off this kiddie thank you.
