Baby Shower Card for Misty

This is one of my all time favorite stamp sets. I love that you can use it for Spring, Babies, Easter, Sympathy, or just for Fun! It is called Springtime and it will ALWAYS be in my stash of favs!!
I used Caboodle paper pack, one of CTMH's newest, and it is perfect for boys or girls. In the above shot, sorry so dark it was night when I took my pics, I wanted to show you how I used CTMH's bitty sparkles on each rain drop. I LOVE the deminsion and texture these add to my card.

Here I stamped my two little duck images in Cocoa Ink and then used my water color pencils to color them in. After that I took a water brush and gently blended the water color pencil where I wanted it. Such an easy way to make your stamped images come to life!!

Sorry this one is a little blurry. I used a deminsional element and inked it with Sweet Leaf Ink. I then stamped the words "Sweet Baby" in Crystal Blue Ink and then glue dotted two Cocoa ribbons to the sides.
I made this card for a friend who is due to have her baby June 4th, but none of us think she will last that long. I am pregnant right now too and just the thought of it makes me long to meet my little one. I still have 18 weeks to go!! At least I am on the downhill slide now!!
Thanks for looking and I promise I will do better about updating my blog.
