Baby Card with a Little Glitter

Hi Everyone! I had colored this image a while ago. . .I had stamped the image twice, colored it, and a few weeks ago made a card with the other image. I think I colored the other one pink. I decided to save the boy version of this image and I finally pulled it out to make a card.

I added Stickles to the moon and star to give it a little bling! I love bling. It's such an easy way to make an image stand out a little bit.

I believe this SU stamp is from the "Announcement" stamp set but don't quote me. I've already put the set away so I don't know what the name of the set is. Like the previous card that I posted, I decided to create my own background.
I have a lot of little stamps meant to be used to create the background of your cards and I don't often use them because I have a tendency to go the easy route and use a designer paper. You have to admit designer papers are so much faster than creating your background. . .you know, just cut them and slap them on.

But. . .I'm getting a little tired of using them for all my cards. Besides,it was fun creating my own background.

The other element to my card was that I added a metallic star charm which can't really be seen because the shadow sort of hid it with the picture above.

I also used yarn to attach the charm rather than hemp cord. I think using yarn for baby cards fits nicely with the baby theme. Don't you think?

Card Details:

Stamp: SU Announcements (I think)
Paper: SU Yoyo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Copic Markers, SU Tempting Turquoise, Sakura Souffle Opaque pen.
Accessories: JoAnn Scrap Essentials, Grosgrain ribbons, yarn, Fiskar scallop scissors, Stickles, SU Slit Punch

Dear Maria,
Your card is just so precious! I know what you mean about taking the easy route with the DP instead of making your own background. I love the way you did your background with the stars that ties in with the sentiment's moon image - very sweet. Thanks for the inspiration to create my own background paper :)
I am still getting unpacked from our trip back to Iowa - so I have no idea where anything is anymore. How is it already Thursday? crazy how days melt together when you have been sick... anyhow - Maria - Its always a pleasure to visit your blog and see your beautiful creations! They are all just lovely, each and everyone of them!!!
Hope this message finds you in happiness :)
