Play Date Cafe 74 - Welcome LIttle One

This week's color inspiration comes from our own Ruby 2 Shoes, and our sponsor this week is Lizzie Anne Designs.

They have the sweetest stamps!  Our design team was blessed with some of their adorable stamps and here is my sample for this challenge:

As I put this card together, I was thinking about the lullaby, "Winken, Blinken and Nod."  There's something magical to me about this combination of colors and patterned papers and Lizzie Anne images.

The bird/moon image was stamped on patterned paper from K & Company's Wild Raspberry Die Cut Mat Pack.  The same blue paper is in the background.  I sponged some Baja Breeze on the moon for depth, and colored the birds with Stampin' Up! markers. 

The group of stars and the one dangling from the moon were touched with Smooch Ink in gold and silver.

The purple and gold paper is from DCWV Once Upon A Time mat stack.  I propped up my "picture" on an "easel", which was made from Stampin' Up!'s Tulipe Bigz Die.

Check out what the rest of the design team has in store for you:
 Ruby -- Tracey -- Jaclyn -- Jinny -- Sarah -- Julie -- Michele --
Fiona -- Andrea -- Libby -- Savannah
....and our special Guest Designer this week:  Taylor Usry!
