Card for a new born

Here’s a card I made for a couple of challenges:

I needed a card for a new born and it was the current Smudgy Antics ‘bad baby’ challenge who inspired me into making this Lil’ Grumpie card. I had to rack my brain to turn this grumpie fellow into a baby, but the safety pin and doodled hat did the trick, I think. Ok, he doesn’t really look bad, on the contrary, it’s a cuty, but I still hope to be in line with the current theme. The colour inspiration came from the Macabre Monday HDH137 Perplexing Pigment Play challenge. I love the combination of lime, purple and teal!

I’d also like to enter this card into the following ‘anything goes’ challenges:

The background was sprayed with purple and lime Glimmer Mist. The dots were heat embossed using a combination of white and holographic embossing powder.

Stamps used

  • Little monster: Smeared Ink
  • Dots: Judi Kins

    I love it Julie. I have a grandson due the end of July but I don’t think my kids would like it. hehe But I LOVE it. I have cards I need to find someone “Special” to give them to. I think you did a fantastic job putting the diaper on!

    Oh, that’s gorgeous!
    I so love the idea, the little monster is so cute … and the idea to hang it clothesline along with its diapers is just too funny.
