Welcome Baby!

This afternoon I am making Chicken Enchiladas for a friend that just had a baby a few weeks ago -- 4 1/2 weeks early! But everything is fine, and the sweet new little one is at home now.

Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby looking for a particular border punch, and when they didn't have that I ventured into the paper aisle (like I need any more paper in my entire life, and two generations beyond that! LOL). It was on sale, so of course I had to get SOMEthing! I bought two single sheets - and have no idea why I chose what I did. But guess what? When today's SCS Color Challenge was posted, it was the EXACT colors in the paper I bought. How cool is that?

AND -- I needed to make a card using a wonderful new release by Our Daily Bread designs today -- and everything just sort of fell into place from there! Here is my card:


And here is the complete set: Children of God~

The color challenge was to use Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa and So Saffron. I really like how it turned out!


Stamps: Children of God (ODBD)
Paper: Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, DP by The Paper Studio, Whisper White
Ink: Palette Noir Black
Accessories: MS branch punch, paper flowers (Hero Arts), dew drops, word window punch, Nestabilities, MS lace doily border punch, bitty brads (CTMH)
