It's a Boy!

Happy Friday! 


The challenge was to use black, blue, and one other color. It was also to use the Life's a Beach cart, but I don't have that, so you were allowed to use one other cart. I chose Cake Basics™. I was thinking of cartridges that had an umbrella on them so that at least it could have been found on Life's a Beach. 


I made this card in 25 minutes - which is basically a record for me. It usually takes me about an hour a card because I can't commit to something and have to change it around. I had an idea in my head for this one and just executed. It was a really nice feeling that I am going to try to repeat. :)

Recipe:
Cartridge: Cake Basics™
Card Stock: Paper Trey Ink™"Spring Rain", "Enchanted Evening", "True Black", and "Lemon Tart"
Design Paper: KaiserCraft: Iris
Stickles in "Waterfall" from Artful Delight's November Kit
Glossy Accents™
Half "pearls" by Imaginisce + i-rock™
White Gelly Roll™ gel pen

This card also qualifies for Kim's Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge. Here is the inspiration photo:

Have a fabulous Friday!
