"First Somethings" Challenge

Happy Friday!!

Well, here it is, my first challenge card for our new challenge blog. STAMP SOMETHING officially launched this morning! Woo Hoo! :)

This week the theme of the challenge is "First Somethings." You can make a card having to do with a first, such as a new baby or a new house or a first birthday. Or you could do something that is a first for you, such as a technique, altering an item, trying a layout and color combination, anything that's a new for you.

I chose to make a baby card. I love baby cards and I don't often have a reason for making them. I used the color combo of Groovy Guava, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, and White. I added a piece of Designer Prints Paper and a piece of Swiss Dots embossed white cardstock for some added detail. The ribbon is from my Sherbet Originals stash and is held on with 2 Build-a-Brads. The stamps are from By Ones & Twos from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Mini. I used my Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangles on the image layer and some paper piercing around the image. I finished with the ticket corner punch on the outside two layers and stamped the sentiment on Guava and punched it with the word window punch.

I hope you'll hop on over to STAMP SOMETHING and participate in the challenge and blog candy offer! The blog candy winner will be drawn at 7pm ET next Thursday! Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend. Happy Stamping!! :)
