RS 116 Gorgeous Grunge, Cuddles & Kisses, and Barron Bear

My daughter and son-in-law posted their exciting news on Facebook tonight; so, I’m now free to tell the world, that they’re expecting their first baby and our first grandbaby.  I couldn’t be happier for them; I know they’re going to be awesome parents!  As soon as they posted their announcement, I scooted down to my studio and designed this card using this week’s Retrosketches  sketch.   I stamped the bear, then masked over him while I stamped the Gorgeous Grunge background.  The ribbon border was a bit heavier than I wanted, so I simply trimmed it in half and it felt “just right.”  An In Color Boutique embellishment seemed to be the perfect finishing touch!

    1. Thanks Jodi! I didn’t realize how pink the card did look until you mentioned it — the color is actually crisp cantaloupe; I was trying to keep it gender neutral — but, who knows 😉

  1. Hello there! I just wish to give you a big thumbs up for the excellent information you’ve got right here on this post.
    I will be returning to your blog for more soon.
