Baby on Board...

One of our oldest friends, Jeff, and his wife, Christie, are expecting their second baby next year. They already have a darling little girl and we are so happy for their new little one. Jeff and Christie are an adventurous, fun-loving couple, and I thought I'd make a card to help them celebrate the end of a not-so-pleasant first tri-mester.
For this card, I started with Taylor's fresh and funky sketch and looked for something bold and fun. I broke out my August Key Ingredients paper and  ran the bright patterned paper through my Big Shot with some circle dies. Next, I stamped this cute VW bug and colored it with Copics. I outlined the whole thing with a clear glitter pen to make up for the dark ink color. (The circle behind the car is actually the B-side of one of the circles I cut out earlier!)  I chose a deep, matching textured cardstock and added a bright polka-dot bow. The sentiment, "Baby on Board," is so teeny-tiny on the license plate, but I think it pretty much sums things up!

Hi Regina!
Seriously dig that you punched out the circles rather than put circles on the card. It just gives it that pop!
So well done!

By the way, thanks for joining the Impromptu hop!

loved the idea of cutting out the shape instead of layering something. Just looked at the rest of your blog. Great cards.
