CTD280 - Sweet Baby Boy

Thanks for stopping by for Color Throwdown 280! It's my turn this week to host the challenge! All the catalogs that have come to my house this month are full of a navy blue color scheme, so this week I chose these pretty blues with a pop of green for us to work with. 

I hope you get a chance to play along for a chance to be next week's Guest Star Stamper!

I used the color challenge as inspiration for this sweet, baby boy scrapbook page. 

To create the subtle background pattern I used the Gears Stencil and a sponge dauber with Sno Cone Ink. Any patterned paper is from Authentique Paper.

At the top I added the word love with the Lots of Love Die-namics and Nightshift Blue Card Stock. The onesie is cut with the Baby Onesie Die-namics and I added the dot accents with Liquid Pearl. I also added three buttons in Nightshift Blue, Sno Cone, and Gumdrop Green.

The little pocket is cut with the Treat Pocket Die-namics, from vellum. I used the Traditional Tags Die-namics and a sentiment from the Distressed Hearts Stamp Set to added the pocket embellishment.

The sun is cut with the Sunshine Die-namics.

"SWEET" is added with the Little Letters Die-namics and "BABY Boy" is a sentiment from the Baby Onesie Stamp Set. 

The border is added with the Paper Doll Boy Border Die-namics.
