Papertrey Ink - Lace Bouquet and how about Betty Davis?

Hi -
I took some time to play with one of my Papertrey Ink stamp sets over the weekend. I love how simple this card is. That is hard for me :0)  The photo just didn't come out very well... darn it.
This card really was simple, I used cream card stock for the base. Then Chocolate brown card stock for the mats. That fabulous script paper is Papertrey Ink - Their new Dearest Jane collection of papers. The sentiment just happens to also be Papertrey Ink :0) From the fabulous Anniversary set - Pretty Peonies. So so happy I spent enough to get this set :0) LOL It really is a gorgeous set. OH.. just realized the ribbon is Papertrey Ink too....

Lets see the corner dies are cut from Whimsy Stamps. I cut four out of cream, then four out of the brown. Then layered them. Pearl accents on the corners. The stamp is just Papertrey Ink Snow White ink on Kraft card stock. Look up close how pretty it is -

The shadow is created by outlining the stamp with my Copic W3 marker. Cool SIMPLE effect.

I am trying to put together a bunch of cards for a local gift shop that has asked me to sell them. Nervous about it. But excited. Hope they do ok.

And now... would you like to meet Betty Davis? She is SO cute!

 I thought Rhett was starting her labor Sunday afternoon... was watching her and checking on her often. But oops... missed it! Was out at ten minutes after 3 - then at 4:00... there she was! Standing all cleaned up and Rhett doing great. For a while I thought there might be a second, but nothing ever came :0) So one adorable little girl - she is really gorgeous. That frosty red color just like her cousins Starksy and Hutch, white and THEN that gorgeous grey color I was hoping for from daddy Peso! Then she also has those beautiful blue eyes just like her Mommy.

So now there are three babies bouncing around the pen. With more coming :0) Been watching a few really really close, so exciting!

Have a great day!
