It's a Girl Thing!!



Good morning everyone!! We finally got some rain yesterday...yeaaaa!!! Parts of Temple are on a water restriction so the yards are looking a little brown!! I have some exciting news...we are waiting for the birth of a new baby....our donkey Starfire will deliver any day now. I will upload some pictures soon!!! We are hoping for a girl since her last two babies were boys....gotta love little girls!!! Anyway....
I made this card for today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast. The background stamp from Rubbernecker called Shopping Background was stamped with Archival Jet Black and embossed with clear ep. It was colored with the challenge colors reinkers: Tempting Turquoise, Baja Breeze, Apricot Appeal, and Creamy Caramel. The dress called Brush Gown with Flower on Top also from Rubbernecker was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Fashion Icons set #456. Ribbon and pearls finish it off.
Recipe:

Stamps: Brush Gown with Flower on Top, Shopping Background, Sentiment from Fashion Icons set #456 all from Rubbernecker Stamps
Paper: Black, White, Tempting Turquoise
