A little break from the Valentine’s today.

This card is a “unisex” baby card.  I know green is a bit predictable but I do like to pair it with orange for a baby card that stands out.

The patterned paper is My Mind’s Eye.  I got the 12X12 version at eP but found a “UK exclusive” when I was in England back in October and couldn’t resist picking up the 6X6 version as the smaller scale of the patterns is so much better for cards – never mind that I had to pay in £ what I would have paid in $ back home.  Worth every penny!

I CASE’d a card by Cammie (Carolyn King) changing pretty much everything except the general layout.  Her card was square and had a few more details than mine (and was very cute!) but I liked the basic concept enough to borrow the blueprint. 

Here’s the result:

The little rocking horse is from a Hero Arts set.  I love their stuff and I’m trying to avoid checking out their latest releases.  I know they’ve got some really cute bigger stamps in their newest catalogue (in particular a cupcake and a teacup that I’d love to own) but I need to try to get more mileage out of the stuff I already own and I’m making a little progress in that department since I’ve changed craft rooms (more space = better layout!)

I’m taking a night off from blogging tomorrow but I’ll be back at it over the weekend and will have more to share next week.  My little stamping hiatus did me a world of good.
