Heart 2 Heart Challenge

My first Heart 2 Heart challenge! I'm a little nervous...

Now here is a card I love! This one blows the last ones I did out of the water. Thanks to my friend Shannon for being about to "pop" soon, I needed to make this card for her anyway (Shannon, if you're reading this stop right now and go away - you can see it later!) This card came easily and I don't really want to give it away...but it's alright as I know it's going to a good home and I could make another.

This card is a perfect example of the great benefit of CTMH's acrylic see-through stamps. Believe it or not, I realized I don't have one stamp with the word 'baby' on it. So I ended up using letters here and there from words on another set. This required a fair amount of being able to see which letter I was inking where, without adding unwanted extras. Don't you just love this cute little lion!? (Sorry Shannon, no giraffe).

All products CTMH unless otherwise noted.
Paper: Topstitch
Stamps: Life's A Jungle, Dainty Thoughts
Ink: Garnet
Ribbon from somewhere that I don't remember. If you read my previous post, you will realize I must have a lot of ribbon stashed up and you are correct!
