CAS-ual Fridays...The Bold and the Beautiful

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is to make a clean and simple card using Pastels and Black.  I know we just had a week of baby making cards a few weeks back, but I gave that card away to my daughter to give away(and it was pink, anyhow), and had a shower to go to yesterday...although this is another version of the one I gave the mother-to-be(she's having a boy, so I made the giraffe blue....how come girls cards can have blue, but boys cards look funny with pink???...I'm just saying:)!!).
I got the idea from a baby card I saw at Target...it's fun to look at cool cards and get ideas...Target has some very cool cards!  The card showed some cute animals stacked on top of one another.  These are the only animals I have, so I stamped on die cut outs, layered on chipboard for depth and layered on white panel.  They each have a heart on their behinds, so I stamped the heart from the same stamp set on white cardstock, clear embossed and colored with color of animal.  I cut out the hearts, and dotted with Glossy Accents, dried and attached over the white heart spot on their butts with another dot of Glossy Accents.
The colors I used were Apricot Appeal, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink.  The Stamps and dies are Papertrey Ink Sweet Baby, the sentiment Papertrey, as well, Script Sentiments. The card measures 4" x 7"... fits a business sized envelope beautifully:)!!
Another fun challenge!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Super super cute! Love the textured cardstock you used and the way you stacked those sweet little animals. :) The glossy hearts are the perfect touch! And the touch of pink is awesome - even boys need some pink in their lives!

Love the darling little hearts and the card shape is such a nice break from the usual A2. Such a cute card--and the pink/blue thing's a mystery to me, too.

This is so adorable, Lisa! I agree about the pink and blue. I think baby boys probably like pink as well as blue but maybe their daddy's don't?!?
