A Noise with Dirt on it...
I have in one of my many discount card stacks, this AWESOME paper that says a whole lot of things, but I especially loved the one that says "Boy.n. A noise with dirt on it." Cracked me right up! Had to have it, and had to get that centered. I am a fan of primary colors for kids, too, so the rest of the red, yellow and blue just seemed to be perfect. I didn't want to do a ton of extra colors when it came to detailing, so I only colored the duck in the toy line, since it was the only traditionally primary colored (yellow, hello) one. a splash of red in the candle to point up one year old, a flash of ribbon, and there it is.
I haven't heard whether he liked it, yet. No news is good news, though, right?
Since I had everything out, and I was digging the primary scheme, I decided to see what it would look like with the colors in different areas. I came up with this.
You'll notice that the swiss dot embossing photographed much nicer on the yellow strip in this one than on the red in the first card, but I did do it on both.
Any baby boy out there need some greeting??? There's also some girl paper to be played with. I will have to summon some strength for that one. I'm feeling a whole lotta pink comin' on....
Thanks for stopping by!
