Stampin' Up! - Button Buddies Baby card

Hello there

This card was designed for the latest sketch challenge over at
Just Add Ink and also for the colour challenge on offer from Utah Divas International, which called for Whisper White, Basic Grey, Rose Red & Pear Pizzazz. It didn't really come out the way I imagined it in my head....and I really need to get a new platform through which to photograph my cards. I have a good camera but I am trying to source one of those nifty photography light boxes that are designed for small items. :)

I still enjoyed putting 'markers to stamp' on the rattle from the "Button Buddies" Stampin Up set. It is VERY cute! I used some of the new Bakers Twine from the Summer Mini as a little rattle bow.

Hope you like it!
