Bunny for Baby

The Cat's Pajamas challenge is "All Things Baby".   I don't have a baby images from TCP so I decided to use lots and lots of pink to make it suitable for welcoming a baby. 

I was in the distressing mode from yesterday, so this card got the grunge treatment too.  I'll probably be on this kick for awhile. 

One of the things that doesn't show in the photo is the centers of the stamped pinwheels have Taylor's Tiny Twinkles in the center.  The brads on the striped paper are green not black, they match the scraps of cs used for the dark grass. 

I had a difficult time with the photo of the inside.  The large pinwheel on the face makes it impossible to fold the card over.  The image was stamped with a beige ink but it looks black in the photo.

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas - "Field of Pinwheels"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Close to My Heart "Dessert Sand"
paper - My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade" cs; My Mind's Eye "Dreamy 2"
miscellaneous - copics; ZVA crystals; brads; mini brad; the Cat's Pajama's Cut Ups "Pinwheels"; Creative Memories cutting system; sewing machine
