Black, White & Red All Over

I feel like I've been playing catch up since I was out of the loop the last week or so but no, just got the kids to bed a little earlier than normal last night and was able to have some very sweet quiet Mommy time, sigh! I have so much DVR to catch up on but my craft room was calling my name, so up I went to my quiet little haven instead! Thank goodness for all of these wonderful online challenges, cause they really help give me something to focus on, so that I'm not just sitting in lala land twiddling my thumbs waiting for inspiration to pop out of my tired brain. (although that's not a bad thing either) I'll take it anyway I can!
I started off with this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch
and then paired it with a color challenge, cause every card HAS to have color, right?! Taken from The Paper Players inspirational photo.
Using Whisper White as my base, I then added a layer of Basic Black with just a hint of Real Red along the side with the scallop border punch. Using a onesie stamp, I made a background for my "It's A Boy" phrase to sit on. I stamped the BOY in Real Red and then Versa Marked over the top with Clear Embossing Powder. I also finally broke into my new SU! glitter brads (and of course used all the RED ones) since I ended up making 3 of these cards at once.

Dawn... I love this card! I love the baby tees in the background. I love to popped BOY. I love the fact that you repeated the circular shape of the border in the brads. Perfect!
A wonderful take on the challenge!
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week. Hope you will join us again.

Ha! I didn't even notice that was YOUR card right next to mine until just a minute ago. Very, very cute! So happy that onesie is getting lots of ink!
