Babies, Leaves and a Hip Hop Hangover!

Hello! I made these cards for the Unity challenges for Hip Hop yesterday. We had to make a baby card. I thought this chick and this sentiment from the March KOTM were perfect! I distressed all of the edges with a distressing tool and sponged some brown ink on the edges and even on my ribbon. I used some SU markers to add faux stitching around the borders. I was going for a vintage, shabby chic look. I think it turned out super cute! The ribbon is so saffron and the DP is delicate dots, both are from SU's Sale-a-bration catty.

For this card, the challenge was to use no more than three layers, and no more than three colors on our card (neutrals didn't count). My card base is kraft, and I framed the stamped images on chocolate chip. I stamped the images with baja breeze, chocolate chip and kiwi kiss. I added some antiqued brads in the corners and some jute twine at the top. I distressed the edges on this card too.


Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

Emily
