Welcome Baby for The Card Concept

The Card Concept's challenge was to create a baby card.  I decided to go with a unisex card and started by creating a water color background using a wide striped stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

I had the baby carriage die, and my mind went back to the baby carriage that my mother had in the garage as a kid growing up.  It looked similar to the one below . . . it was either black or navy, and I think it might have been white paisley print.  Hard to remember that far back (dating myself).

I'm definitely a clean and layered girl.  I've had friends who have made fun of my linear style . . . "you're so linear!"  Is that a bad thing? 

The carriage was put together using pattern papers, cardstock and POW paper from American Crafts.  Black, silver and white! 

Supplies Used
Cardstock:  Bazzill, Strathmore Watercolor and American Crafts POW
Pattern Paper:  Close To My Heart
Stamps:  Wide Stripes and Handwritten Borders from Simon Says Stamp
Dies:  Cottage Cutz Baby Buggy
Ink:  Close To My Heart and Versafine
Other:  Ki Rhinestones
