EASY as 1,2,3

This week's challenge at DRS Designs is Easy as 1,2,3. You need to have 1 of something, 2 of something and 3 of something on your card. Pretty easy, right? Actually, I had a hard time with this one. Go figure. Here's what I finally came up with: 1 sentiment, 2 colors (pink and gray), 3 embellishments (button, baker's twine and lace). Here's the card.

I knew I wanted a baby card featuring Jungle Jim the elephant, so I started by stamping him on white CS with Memento Black ink, coloring with Copics, die cutting and layering on gray CS. Next I stamped the Vicki's Versatile Background on the pink panel with Stazon Dove Gray ink, layered it on gray CS and added the white lace before attaching it to the white card base. The sentiment was stamped, die cut and added over the lace. The button and baker's twine complete the look. I think this image makes a sweet baby card. I actually created this for my niece who was told they were 90% sure she was having a girl at an ultrasound visit. Before getting this in the mail, she had another ultrasound. This time they're 100% sure she's having a boy. I guess I'll be making another one of this with a more masculine touch. :-)

Hope you can join in this week's challenge! You could be the winner of some fabulous stamps!!

I'm also entering this in the Crafty Creations Challenge: All Creatures Great and Small. I loved reading those James Herriot books!! You can see details for this challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by.
