Latest CAS DT challenge upload




Have you ever made a card for yourself? This is for me! I am pregnant with my first girl. I have 2 boys that I love more than life, but I am beyond excited to be adding my little girl to our family. After 8 years of waiting for my precious little girl, the sentiment "Precious Moments" refers to those wonderful little girl moments I can't wait to share with my baby girl. The thought of playing dress-up with her tiny little feet in my high heels brings tears to my eyes. So congrats to me!

Now to the nitty gritty, first, I apologize for the scan. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the color right in a photo. Here is a photo I took of the same card.http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=230060

The CAS DT challenge titled "Fashion Statement" was to use DP in a card, but not too much. My DP is the shoe lining and flower. The shoe is cut using SCAL and a file from SVGcuts.com. I scored a box in the white paper just outside the inner black mat and finished the corners with gems.

I like how you used a simple layout and a pink background to showcase your cool shoe.

Congrats on your baby news. I have a friend who wanted a girl so she kept trying. She ended up with 5 boys instead (all of whom she loves of course). So lucky you.
