Paper Players Challenge #17-An Inspiration from LeAnne

Paper Player Design Team member, LeAnne, has just welcomed her first granddaughter to the world!  Her name is Cassidy and she is absolutely adorable.  I wasn't surprised when LeAnne chose an adorable baby image as her inspiration photo for this week's challenge!! 

I have realized that I need more baby type stamps. So instead of going ga-ga for baby images, I decided to make a "Congratulations" card for a proud grandma or mama....using the pretty colour combo of Pretty in Pink, Basic Black and Crumb Cake. 

I love the Vintage Vogue set and paired it up with some retired Bella Bleu DSP, using a couple of crumb cake DSP pieces as my two main panels of the card.  The sketch is from Splitcoast Stampers and is Sketch Challenge #259.  I liked the layout and thought it showed off the colours nicely.  I used my crimper to crimp the main strip of paper that fits across the card.  I also used my En Francais background stamp to create the main pink background panel of the card.  The edges are all sponged.

I hope you get the chance to play with us this week!!  To see the designs of the other team members and to play along, please click HERE.
