A New Sketch Meets a New Baby!

Good Morning All!

It is that time again; where are the weeks going??  I am a bit shocked that summer is almost over.  So here we are, with another new sketch at Seize the Sketch.  This sketch is brought to us by the talented Mona Pendleton.
My interpretation~

The sketch~

I decided to get outside my comfort zone with this card and try the collage style. The sweet bear is actually from a Valentine's set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Valentine Critters.  I think this cute bear doubles perfectly for a baby card. She is colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I had some packaged die cuts that I had bought for the express purpose of trying out collage style cards with lots of layers and the rose image grabbed me.  To that I added a black striped journaling box die cut and some cheese cloth.  I framed all of the elements with a 'polaroid style' frame cut from dp.  The back panel is glossy white cs, mimicking the shine of photo paper.
I used the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Delightfully Delicate Background Stamp for the panel on the bottom of the card.  From glossy white cs I cut a scallop edge using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Scallop Borders dies.
I also added a couple of leaves to the collage, mimicking the leaves that are a part of the rose image.  From white cs, I die cut 2 leaves using the Thankful Blooms Die Set.  I used various shades of blue and green Copics to color the leaves and tucked them in behind the circular rose die.  My seam binding bow finishes off the card.
 There is lots more A-mazing inspiration on the Seize the Sketch blog.  Hop on over an check it out, then why not play along!   If you are hopping along to check out all of the DT inspiration, the next blog to be inspired by is Lori Turner.
