grown-up baby card

Mitt's got Super Tuesday. I've got Super Challenge.

Picked up this rubber stamp on ebay and use it often. I love the vintage feel of those baby shoes (probably cuz I wore shoes like that).

I'm out to prove that baby cards don't always have to be pink/blue and cutesy.

Actually I'm out to rock three challenges :)  CAS-ual Fridays wants a CAS baby card.  Less is More wants neutrals and Catered Crop is ravenous about ribbon. 

Decided to use kraft as my base.  PP with a barely-there-checkered-pattern in light gray for the shoes which I also heat embossed for some texture. Greige polka dot circle.  Recycled and stamped twill messy-stitched.  All edges inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  Done. 

I actually used sketch #18 from Fetch-a-Sketch.  Like the simplicity of it.  Missed the deadline.  Surprise, surprise.

Supplies: baby congratulations
Paper: kraft ?, PP Fancy Pants & echo park
Stamps: shoes A La Carte, sentiment Stampendous
Ink: black Versafine
Tools: corner rounder  & circle punch EKS,  sewing machine
Other: embossing powder
