Use It Tuesday Challenge #26

Hi ya'll!

I hope your week is going well, so far.  It's been crazy, go figure, around here and we were closed at work for inventory yesterday and today.  I've got some catching up to do on Wednesday now for sure. 

I have another Use It Tuesday project for you today.  My fellow UIT DT member, Heather, has just welcomed her beautiful baby girl, Claire, into the world.  Thanks to this wonderful event, we're celebrating with this challenge, which is, All About Baby.  For all of the details, click HERE.

I always struggle with masculine cards, but this weekend made me realize that I struggle with baby cards as well.  I had NO clue what to do for this challenge. lol  Then I broke out the distress inks, like I always do when I can't figure out what else to do, and this is the result.  I dig it.  I used an older striped background stamp to add some dimension, and i used up some hoarded patterned papers and a stamp set I've had since last year but had yet to ink it up.  I think this will go to my best friend Drew and his wife, who are expecting their first baby...a boy.

I've combined the following challenges in my card as well:

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #153 - Sketch
Paper Sundaes #109 - Circles
Scrappy Frogs - Die Cuts
Play Date Cafe #120 - Baby Blue, Orangecicle, Basil

I hope you'll head over to the Use It Tuesday to see what my friends have created for you today.  They're wonderful!
