Bundle of BOY

In need of a baby card!

I used the technique lover's challenge on Splitcoast to make a card using one color of ink and not coloring in the image. I used Not Quite Navy ink for the bear and sentiment and the doodling.

I also did the Stampin' Royalty challenge - dressing down (not use embellishments). It was hard. In my learning as a card-maker I have grown to love and appreciate embellishments as they add that extra special something to a card. I found this a challenge to NOT use ANY! So I tried to compensate by using lots of punches, framelits, embossing, patterned paper and doodling!

The bear image is from "Bundle of Joy" and the sentiment is from "Four Square". Both are retired Stampin' Up! sets that I thought I'd play with today.

Trish this card is super cute! Love the layers and the added texture from the embossing. I found this challlenge hard too, but you nailed it:)
