Little Miss Perfect

Howdy, peeps!  For the first time this week, I got a card done the day prior to when I needed to post it, I made today's card last night while my hubs was putting together some Ikea drawers for my craft room (thanks, Tiana!).  So anyway, the baby shower might be over but apparently I still have babies on the brain.


I thought that sentiment from Greatest Greetings would be awesome for a baby girl card.  Anyway, my creative process began with the Paper Players' tic-tac-toe challenge:


I went down the left side, using flowers, die cuts, and yellow.  I paired it with the Freshly Made Sketch for this week:


My banners are a bit longer than it shows in the sketch so that they could accommodate the sentiment, so I pulled the onesie over to the side so that I kept the asymmetry of the sketch.

Lastly, I used this week's Colour Tree combination:


I think the trend the past few years to have more saturated colors for baby stuff is fun, I like it.  I only used a tiny bit of Tip Top Taupe and just a bit more of Pool Party, but I think the Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral work really well for the rest of the card.

I've got a poor sick hubs at home today so I will be quietly working in my basement craft room while he hopefully gets lots of rest so he feels better.  And also so we're separated by an entire level in the house so maybe I won't get sick? ;)  Cheers, y'all!
