My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette 04 Challenge

Today I'm participating in the My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette 04 Challenge!

I love the stamps that My Time Made Easy creates! This challenge was a bit, well, challenging for me.  I don't often use Peach or Seafoam Green.  Ivory and Kraft aren't a problem, though!!!

I decided to make a baby card for this one.  I honestly don't own much in Peach, scrapbooking or otherwise.  Nothing against it - I just look horrible when I wear it (I'm too pale), so I steer clear of it in general.  But I did find some peach and seafoam green stock in a baby pack I had from DCVW!!! Woo hoo!!! That worked out well - not only do I have a ton of friends that are pregnant right now, I was able to use the cute Papertrey Ink Teddy Bear stamp!!!

I stamped the bear twice and paper pieced him together.  I used two PTI dies (banner and scalloped rectangle).  I also stamped the "LOVE" sentiment onto some Bazzill green stock with seafoam green ink from Martha Stewart.  I was so happy to use my new Stampin Up confetti stamp, too! I adore those little ABC's at the bottom of the card!

To finish it off, I added a PTI sentiment in the upper left corner and I drew some stitching around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to play along with this week's My Time Made Easy Color Challenge!
