Welcome, Baby

Thank your for stopping to visit my blog today. The above card was my design team card for Chalk N Stock Challenge. I thought this darling digi stamp from Bugaboo was just perfect for a welcome, baby card. Actually, the background CS is peach so that it could be used for either gender. I paper pieced the giraffe as well as the frame.  For this design team, we are to use chalk somewhere on the paper craft. I used chalk for the shadow of the giraffe, the leaves and the ears. Chalking is a simple and quick way of coloring. It is so easy to blend colors too. You still have time to join us for our current challenge. Just click HERE and you will be directed to the challenge blog.
