More Swell News!

I am having such a blast with this stamp set, Swell News, that I had to put another card together!!

Of course, it started out I was going to use the "Congratulations" sentiment on this card, but I grabbed the "We're Expecting" sentiment at the last second, proving once again that some creations have a life (and mind) of their own!!

I was at Scrapbook Studio in Hyde Park the other day and I picked up some Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper - WOW! I love the muted pasted shades in this line!

I stamped the teddy bear once on three different designer papers and then cut them out. I stamped them again on PTI Stampers Select White and coloured them in with copics. Then I popped up the matching dp bears onto the coloured bears.

I used the scalloped circle nestabilities and cut out the scalloped circles with the same DP and glued the bears onto the corresponding DP.

Then I adhered them to a strip of Memory Box Canteloupe and that whole thing onto Bazzill white.

The base of the card is Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White with designer paper Honey Pie Megan glued on top.

The pink strip is the reverse of the Megan designer paper
and I tied a piece of luscious May Arts polka dot ribbon around it!

For an added touch, I added a little rocking horse charm, just to prove that we are expecting a baby and not company or a storm or bad news, just in case you weren't sure!! LOL!

Okay, well WE are not expecting a baby, that would be a heart attack on a plate blessed miracle!!
