2RB Baby Boy



So today is the last day of June, which means it's me and my partner-in-crime's (a.k.a. Silke) last day as guest designers for 2 Red Bananas. We thought it'd be fun to do a little "just for fun challenge" using Jami's Precious Bundles baby set.

Jeanette, thanks SO MUCH for having us as guests for the past two months!!

What's our challenge to each other?....make a baby card with lots of white space, some sparkle, add something on foam tape, and decorate the inside....yeah, I know, those are all sort of things that Silke and I already do. Hey, I didn't say we were making it HARD on ourselves, LOL! Oh, and we decided that Silke would make a baby girl card and I'd make a baby boy card. Be sure to stop by Silke's blog today to see what girly goodness she made.



The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch (only I made the main panel a square to go with the square card). The main image and the blue mat behind it are both up on foam tape. I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles for the sparkle. The bow was tied with....yep, the Bow Easy.

Here's the inside of the card where I used the small star from Jami's Precious Bundles set:



Have an awesome day!
