Congrats on the Little Man

Have you heard that Sarah, the owner of Pink by Design brought home a sweet new baby a couple weeks back? The news is here on her blog and his story brought me to tears. So glad he is healthy and finally home!

Well this is the card I am sending for him (albeit a bit late) and it is also my project for the challenge this week on the Pink by Design blog - Boys, Boys, Boys.

I used the Mustaches stamp set and also the Wired Background - another one of my fav stamps. Since it is Wednesday, we are sharing a technique with you - mixing patterns. This is something I love to do not only with paper but with sewing, home decor and dressing myself too. I love all the patterns and find it hard to limit!! But here is my tip - add all the patterns you like, but keep them relatively the same size. That way they don't compete with one another and you can add in a larger print to be a focal point.

And because I am usually working from my scrap pile when creating cards, it makes it easy to find fun and unique pattern/color combos from various paper lines and manufacturers that you might not think of when looking at the full sheets of paper. Got to use up every last scrap!

Click here to link up your boy themed projects. Challenge open until 6/8 and the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Pink by Design store.

Enjoy the week!
