SBS25 Challenge 5

The SBS25 challenge this week to use 2 different printed papers on your card and to use some sparkle. I hope this card fulfills the challenge.

I made this card for a colleague who is about to go on maternity leave. She does not know the sex of her baby so I steered clear of pink and blue and went for Real Red. The background is rolled with the Nursery Letters wheel in Whisper White.

I then layered a piece of Confetti White on top which has 2 pieces of Summer Picnic DSP in opposite corners and has been wrapped with silver cord (retired - darn!). I adhered the section with Pop Glue Dots. The photo corners were punched from Brushed Silver and the silver stars are from the Nursery Necessities set, stamped in Versamark and embossed with silver EP. The other 2 stars were punched from the opposite DSP.

I quite like this card. It is going to work tomorrow so the other members of our section can sign it. We will be presenting her with this card and a gift (a scrapbook ready to add photos) at a team lunch on Friday. I hope she likes Red!

Striking card with a very nice layout! I love the idea of a baby card being in something other than pastels!
