pastel baby card by Lauren Bergold

pink and blue are the traditional colors for babies, and don't get me wrong, i love pink and blue...but...i think i have a new favorite color scheme for baby cards: yellow, green, and dove grey. also, i've decided that the conventional wisdom of never pairing white and cream is a rule that can occasionally be broken quite nicely! :)

i've used the cream lace and green trim from the websters' pages trim collection, and a couple of maya road blossoms to add lots of texture to this simple card. i used a border punch on one of the melissa frances papers, and fussy-cut around the pattern elements of two others.

the text was formatted in wordpad and printed it on an avery clear label which i affixed to a matted panel cut with nestabilities and raised above the base of the card on foam tape. "babies" is composed of the maya road mini chipboard alphas tinted with a white colorbox ink pad. if you think those letter b's look fancier than the ones in the pack--well spotted! having used both of mine in another project, i converted a couple of letter g's to the purpose, and i love the ornate look they give my title!
