A toy for baby

Hi!  I recently made this baby card for the shop, Arts Plus Gallery, where I sell some of my creations.  My inspiration piece:  this little toy duck stamp, which I've had in my unfinished project box for ---ew, quite a while.   I remember stamping a bunch of these at one time, to make THIS card and THIS card.  (Warning:  they're ancient!)


I jazzed things up with a Harlequin stamp (Inkadinkado) in yellow-on-yellow, added some punched stars and sequins, and a yellow ribbon.


Oh yes, I like this version the best.  Those other cards (linked near top of post)....not so much.  Ha!



Stamps: I don't remember, and sold the set, too! Paper: Barely Banana, Ballet Blue, Crumb Cake - SU Ink: So Saffron - SU; Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: Daffodil Delight ribbon - SU Accessories & Tools: larger star punch - Fiskars; small star punch - Itty Bitty Accents - SU; Metallic Gold sequins - MJ Trimming; Sparkling Clear sequins - Pretty Pink Posh; markers

Your cards are just so adorable. I went back to your 2010 cards and they were cuties, too. It is amazing to see the changes, though, from then to now. So many new stamps, dies, and goodies have come out...for us to want, of course.
