Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #454

A friend of mine recently became a grandmother for the second time. I wanted to make a card for her daughter, the mother of the baby. My timing was perfect because the next challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! is

Here's my card

I made this card while away at a craft retreat. I had stamped and colored in the image before leaving as I wasn't taking any markers with me. The image is by Pretty Pink Posh and is from the Little One stamp set. I stamped the baby rattle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used Copic markers in baby boy colors, for baby Finn. I used B12 and BG23. I fussy cut the rattle and struggled a bit with cutting out the little open space in the rattle's handle. I glued the rattle to a square of light teal cardstock and then adhered it to a blue A2 card panel. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Gina K Design's Powder Blue ink. To complete my card, I adhered the panel to a white A2 card base. After I completed my card, I found out that my table mate had her We R Makers Crop-A-Dile with her and I could have used it to punch out the center of the rattle's handle. Oh well, handmade is better than Hallmark - right (to quote Jennifer McGuire)?

We'd love to see your "any occasion" card in our gallery this fortnight.
