Wow, there is a LOT going on here with texture, pattern, bling, shape, and dimension. Note how she fixed the top of the panel to the card base but popped the bottom. That is so cool and I'm going to try that on a later card. Also, see how she tucked some flowers UNDER the panel. So clever!
The basic layout of Sharon's card is really neat, and I thought it would translate well to CAS. Besides, I wanted to make a different sort of baby card for little Grady. Here's what I came up with.
I love this color combo for a baby card...it's fresh and cheerful and happy! All the white really makes the bold bright colors pop without hurting my eyes.
Hmmm. Seeing the card in a photo, however, I think I need another flower on the bottom right corner for balance. Originally, I had only two in the upper corner, but added a third because it looked...odd. The flowers, I think, are just a tad small for all that white space. Now the balance is a bit off, but not bad. I'll add another before dropping it in the mail.
To give the dots an orange background, I traced the curves onto a piece of only orange cardstock and cut slightly inside the line. I glued that cut piece to the back of the white panel, and voila! Orange dots.
