I thought of a baby card when I saw this color challenge and then knew the Baby Doodle Animals Stamp Set would be perfect! I used the Seasonal Mix In paper Pack and Pewter and Ballerina cardstock. I used the Stitched Hearts, Stitched Circles and Heart Thin Cuts. I also added some Silver Glitter Gems and White Ribbon.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 31st to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

I decided to use the Rock ‘n’ Roll technique. Stamping ~ Georgie ~ Baby Card ~ CatScrapbookingI took the alligator and inked it in Juniper, then I rolled it in Whisper.  I have to admit the rock ‘n’ roll  does not show up as well as I hoped in the photograph.  I also used this technique along the circle border.  I rolled the first 3-4 circles in Canary and then in Juniper.  Here is a closer photo which you can see the colors a little better.
