Love this sketch!

So, I've been hanging out more in the SCS forum lately. I even joined a blogging group (that I wrote about here). It's nice to have people comment on your "stuff" and to see other people's creations for your own inspiration.

I've seen a lot of people write about the "sketch" from SCS, but never went to find it, I just used their version as the inspiration. However, now that I've found it I could be hooked! Especially for this week- awesome sketch: SCS 200.


I even did 2 cards... here is the first.
My good friend Melissa is pregnant with her 2nd child and they just found out it is a boy! They are very excited. I had very little time to make the card, but am so happy with how all the colors came together.
I used DCWV blue cs and Blossoms & Butterflies pp, random ribbon from HL (that I did correct after taking the photo!), and PTI Chocolate cs. This cute little duck was stamped in CTMH Indian corn blue (matched the blue cs perfectly!), and I used my blender pen with CTMH Sunflower and Autumn Terracotta to color the middle one. I also popped him up a bit and used my paper piercer for the first time (so forgive it if it isn't straight or very good!). Celebrate at the top is CTMH Say it in Style in Chocolate. (on the inside I used my cricut and New Arrival cart to cut out a 1" version of It's a Boy in the same blue cs- cute!!). Finally, I used a blue envie and stamped another duck on it in chocolate- finishing touch.

This is so cute, the perfect baby card! Love what you did with the sketch, and looking forward to tomorrows! The challenges on SCS are wonderful! I try to do a few a week, would love to do all, but *Hello* my family likes to eat and I have to clean :o)))
I highly recommend them! I think one time I did all of them in a week..before my baby of course!

I am thrilled as well to see you are a Christian, I am too! My husband is a pastor and we are so thankful to be serving Him in the area the Lord has called us.
Have a great night!!
