Shower card for baby boy

This card will be submitted to:
Pals Paper Arts challenge PPA83 asking us to use 3 colors:  

I didn't have those exact colors but came up with something rather close.  Now that I see my card and the Baja Breeze so close, I realize the blue should be more turquoise than baby blue.  Oh well... it's about what inspired me too!  I saw the challenge before I started and loved the browns with the blue so went with it.

I am also submitting my card to the Less is More challenge for week 5.  It's a color challenge using pastels and since baby blue is my main color - voila.  I love when things just work out.  :o)  I love the Less Is More challenge because C&S (clean and simple) is my style.  

I layered the white, brown and the foot print paper.  The puppy and buttons are stickers.  I love how the buttons match the ones on the puppy.  I stamped congratulations in Stampin Up! Whisper White and inked the edge of the brown layer.  That's it.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh, how sweet is your card for a baby boy! Great use of the challenge colors! Thanks for playing along with us at PPA this week.

  2. Oh this is so cute! I love the puppy! Thanks for playing at Pals Paper Arts!

  3. No white space this time, but the design is simple and so is the sentiment. That footprint paper is really cute.
    Thanks for joining us again and we'll see you next time!
