Let those eyes sparkle and shine, never a tear, baby of mine...

I have something fun to share with you today! The Elzybells Team has decided to do a challenge every other Thursday. This week we have eye candy to share with you, and then we are inviting you to play along with us in 2 weeks! You can see more creations on Elizabeth's blog HERE and in the DT Album HERE.

Jeanne gave us a sketch to work with, and here's my take:
Now, those of you that have been reading long know I have a hard time following a sketch. I wanted to be a little different, plus I needed a baby card, so I switched the circle to an oval, and made my card a regular A2 (4.25" x 5.5"). I stamped Baby Bundle in Distress Black Soot Ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and colored him with Copic markers. Then I cut the image out with my Oval Nestabilities and added some layers with Suede Brown Dark Prism cardstock and Soft Sky cardstock. The "It's a Boy" tag was hand written with a black pigment marker. The long strip was stamped with the Baby Multi background in Buckaroo Blue ink on the same cardstock. I love the way Buckaroo Blue looks with Soft Sky....too bad it's gone! I do like Baja Breeze though...I'm waiting for a pack to come in right now!

Anywho...make sure you check out the rest of the team's creations...you can find the links to their blogs on my right sidebar.  They totally rock!!

Thanks so much for coming to visit me today! One more day to enter the Bella Blog Candy, so don't forget! Have a great Thursday!
