ASB challenge # 85

happy new baby
this card came out incredible! i think this is def. my new fav.! you can see the sketch and challenge on "a shade of blue" here.

i got this new paper at joannes the last time i was there ("k & company") and have been wanting to use it for something just fabulous. well, it lives up to my meaning of the word!

so i used 3 pieces of the designer K & co. paper for the CB and under layers, used circle punch to do that cool inverted corner rounder punch (what's the technical name for that punch?), and used pewter brads in all four corners. distressed the edges just a bit with "old paper" distress ink. used SU "fun & fast notes" set. stamped carriage in black stazon and colored with ink & watercolor brush; pastels & blender pens; added some spots w/ white gel pen. pierced the edges of the scallops. used some ivory & light pink narrow organza under the center piece. everything is popped up with dimensionals, dimensionals, dimensionals.

i don't think i'll want to send this to anyone, at least not for awhile. i hav to show it off for a bit first!
hope you have a great night!
