Baby Shower

Happy Tuesday all. I've got a quick post for you this evening...I'm not feeling the greatest, I think I'm coming down with a cold. But I took some Airborne and some DayQuil, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

For today's card, I paired the teddy from Wplus9's "Kisses and Cuddles" with the umbrella from Papertrey Ink's "Scattered Showers". I was pleasantly surprised to find that the bear is the perfect size for the umbrellas in that set (wish I could say that was intentional). I'm not completely happy with this card, I wish the teddy bear weren't so high. Maybe I'll make another one and make sure to move it down a bit. This sort of thing probably wouldn't happen if I actually sketched layouts instead of "winging it". LMAO

But I do like the color combo, Melon Mambo, Blush, White and Black and will probably be using it again soon. I also added a little background pattern using Wplus9's "Design Basics: Backgrounds I".

Thanks for stopping by today. I'll be back tomorrow with two of my favorite cards!
