A baby card and color challenge card to share

Hi everyone!  I have a new Spellbinders card to share!  I made this baby card as a sample for Stacey's recent Spellbinders HSN appearance.  My little card was sitting on the left side of the table.  Stacey's segment was bumped up do to the prior segment ending early.  Thus, my DVRing the show missed it!  So, if you happened to see my card, let me know :-)

The card uses the new Shapeabilities die templates, New Arrival, the Nestabilities Labels Seventeen, and the Jumbo Scalloped Border Petites (say that 5 times!).  The stork and baby were sponged while they were still in the die.  That way only the paper "embossed" gets color.  I have never done that technique before, it was one of the things I learned at the Spellbinders retreat.  Cool huh?  The adorable pattern paper is from Graphic 45, the Baby 2 Bride collection.  So pretty and soft! 
Next up, is a card I made for this week's SCS Color challenge 322.  I rarely have time to play along with SCS challenges anymore and I MISS THEM!  Anyway, this week's colors were Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.  What great soft colors!  I used the cutie stamp set by Unity, Loolah (an Iron Orchid Designs co-brand). The pattern paper is Echo Park, Little Girl Collection and the ribbon is So Saffron.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
