Twinkle Twinkle - A DT Challenge!

It's time again for the monthly Design Team Challenge at Lizzie Anne Designs! This month we were given a really fun sketch to work from - I love sketches! To see what the other rockstars came up, be sure to visit the Lizzie Anne Designs blog for all of the links or click on them in my right-hand sidebar :) After you check them all out, be sure to play along! You can upload your card over at Lizzie Anne Land (remember to link it to the thread), or in the Customer Gallery, or to SCS. Use the keyword LAD_WC_114 so we can all find it to check it out!


I needed to make a congrats card this week. DH and I just found out that his youngest sister and her husband are expecting their first baby in late August. This is SO exciting - not just because it's their first, but because it means all three siblings in DH's family will have babies this year! Our newest niece was born in January (and is, of course, and angel). DH, DD, and I are eagerly awaiting a little boy in May, and now the newest in August! Of course, my in-laws are beside themselves -- they'll go from 2 grandkids to 5 this year. Kids everywhere!


I haven't used my In the Nursery set in I don't know how long and I had honestly forgotten how darn cute it was! To make my image really stick up through my peek-a-boo window, I popped it up on dimensionals. I also put the star on dimensionals. The rest of the card is pretty simple and straightforward. I've just been in the mood for that lately.

Inside the card I added another strip of the Basic Grey dp behind the image. I sponged the edges of the white panel just to give it some depth, and added a small image from the set in the bottom corner. i think the little moon and star are so cute!

Be sure to stop by the other rockstars' blogs to see what they came up with for the sketch -- total awesomeness!

So cute how you used lots of dimension to pop everything up through the front of the card. Love the "interior decorating" too.
