Multi-Challenge Baby card

While I'm waiting for my friend's baby girl to be born sometime soon, the LateNightStampers Yahoo group challenge for the week happened to be a baby card, so I decided to make this one in advance. I also used the Color Throwdown color challenge, the Stamping 411 sketch and the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge to use embossing...




I love how the Stitched Stockings stamps and punches can also be used to make baby socks (and hobby horses too... coming here soon!). I also had fun going a little overboard with the embossing, to play it up for the challenge. I brayered the Stripes folder with Early Espresso to emboss the back layer; a Texturz plate on the Regal Rose square, and the Perfect Polka Dots on the RR scallop. A little smooch spritzon the EE scallop circle (from the Perfect Pennants Die) to give it some bling added one more layer of interest.
