SC273 Baby Bianca's Birthday #1

Good Afternoon! I am back today with a sweet card for a sweet baby girl who will be turning one on April 3rd, my niece, Bianca! I started out with today's sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. You can't tell by the photo, but the lion's mane and face are paper pieced and on dimensionals, so it has really nice dimension to it. The polka dotted designer paper is textured and the bg designer paper has pretty glitter. Here is the recipe (all products are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted)

  • Fox and Friends
  • Teeny tiny Wishes


  • Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
  • DCWV Nana's Kids premium stacks designer paper


  • Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun


  • Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon
  • Spellbinders Nestibilities
  • dimensionals
  • Cuttlebug

The hardest part of making this card was cutting out the lion's mane and face. Otherwise, this was a quick and easy card and sketch to work with! Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by today!
