Muse # 8 Sweet Baby Card



The inspiration this week  is by Therese Calvird on the Muse blog go HERE to link up and see the inspiration.  What I first noticed about her card is the pop of white...I loved the white space and the image set into it.   Since I was in need of a baby card...actually I also need a bay girl card (might be making another one of these)  I thought to use boy colors and bring in that cute giraffe.


Here is Therese's card for the Muse Challenge this week.

paper:  white, spring rain pattern paper
ink:  orange zest, memento black, spring rain
stamps:  Sweet Baby, Baby Button Bits
