Animal, Vegetable or Mineral?

It's animal/bird week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges (disregard the vegetable and mineral....maybe we'll use those another week!)

A friend of my daughter's had her 2nd child two days ago so I went with a baby card that I could send the proud parents.

All products from Close To My Heart. The paper is a soon-to-be-released new pack called Mayberry. The little duck is from the Springtime stamp set. I kept the card fairly simple highlighting the focal image with a stack of mats - all cut using Papertrey Ink dies. I have seen this look popping up a lot and love the different ways dies can be stacked to create multi-level mats. The duck was colored with Copics and dabbed at with the colorless blender so the body has a litttle texture. The words were added with JustRite stamps.

We would love to have you play along with us this week and create artwork that features animals or birds (or even insects!) Pop over to the challenge blog for all the details. This is the last week to play for January prizes!

See you again soon!

Hi Mary!

WOW! This is such a versatile paper packet. I did not know it was Mayberry at first. This is a beautiful card for the baby and parents.

I love all the different shapes. It gives visual interest without being too much. Very pretty card!

Adorable little ducky! This is a great baby card, can be for a boy or a girl! So cute!

I don't think there's been a baby challenge on H2H has there? (hint hint) :)
