A Baby Card with Springs!

Close To My Heart has a cute little New Arrival (C1501) stamp set in the new Spring Summer Idea Book.  I don't have too baby type stamps and whenever I need to make a card for a baby shower, I never seemed to have one I really liked.   When the new Idea Book came out I quickly added this one to my collection. CAS-ual Friday's challenge this week is "make a clean and simple baby project".  I had the perfect opportunity to try it out!

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for my  4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card.

I used the Cotton Candy B&T paper from the Lucy (X7149B) paper pack for my card.  The base in the center is random stamped with the little flower from the New Arrival stamp using Cotton Candy ink.  If the center looks a little off, it is my elephant is 'springing' to greet you!  I used one of Close to My Heart's new products - Adhesive Springs (Z1725).  These little 3/4" springs will make your artwork 'pop'!  You get six springs in the package for only $2.95.  

To complete my flower, I wound Cotton Candy pom pom ribbon to add a soft center to the paper flower.  Next, I added a Pearl Adhesive Gem (Z1336).  The pom pom ribbon is from the Designer Ribbon Pink Collection (Z1384).
