Baby - Brand New

I took a little break from making Valentines to make this card.  A new baby girl will arrive in April in our family - and this may be the card I give them.
I used two shades of pink'ish' and 2 shades of blue'ish for my CAS baby card. Since I made this for a girl baby - I used Hibiscus for the die cut BABY and pink enamel dots - but by changing those to blue - this could very easily be a baby boy card!  I cut a wavy edge on a piece of card stock for my mask and sponged the different colors as I moved the mask around.

My card inspiration came from 4 challenges
The Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast  where I chose this  panel from Design Seeds

Cas-ual Fridays - Color Blocks

Stamps: Precious Baby Quotes - Fiskars
Paper: White, Hibiscus Burst- PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Weathered wood, Faded Jeans, Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar
Accessories: Enamel dots - My Minds Eye, Wonderful words - Baby die - PTI, glue pen, blending tool - Ranger
