Keesh baby card

I had a huge day yesterday. I got home, after a few dramas at work, at about 7:40, had brekky and got ready to attend church for my friends' baby dedication (like a Christening). After the service they had a lunch, where I had a lovely time catching up with friends. I got home about 3, had a cuppa & a few hours sleep, before heading out to a trivia night fundraiser at 7. I was pretty weary by the time I got home at about 10-ish. Needless to say, I didn't have a real early start this morning. I did a load of washing and then decided I could get out my stamps and have a bit of fun before tackling more housework :-)

I've had a bit of a play with Keesh's latest challenge. This one is a sketch challenge.
I like sketch challenges but it usually takes a while to come up with the rest of the ideas. I like this sketch, am hoping to have another play a bit later.

I wanted the 'Wild About You' set for ages, and then, like so many of the stamps I buy, once I got it I didn't really know what to do with it. I decided this sketch lent itself to the giraffe stamp. I then thought 'girlie baby card', and the 'Sweet Always' DSP came to mind. Here is the outcome.

I've chosen colours used in the 'Sweet Always' papers, 'Regal Rose' & 'Pumpkin Pie'. I was going to put a button in the top right corner but then remembered the cute flower brads that are available in the latest mini. One of the colours just so happens to be 'Pumpkin Pie'. I used the baby stamp from the 'Short & Sweet' set along with the 'Word Window' & 'Small Oval' punch. I used my square punches for the side shapes. I know I keep saying it, but i do love my punches.
I don't think I've ever used so much orange in a card, its not one of my fav colours, but I'm amazed by how much I like it mixed with these pinks.

Must go now & clean my bathroom, it is well overdue :-(
Thanks for dropping by,
Love Fi xox

Lovely card Fiona. The image is gorgeous, and the colour scheme works brilliantly. (Like you, I would not have thought to put pink and orange together, but they really compliment each other.) And the little orange flower brad is the perfect touch, Jo
