TYIC#3 and CAS(E) this Sketch! #87

Good morning friends.  Hope you all had a great weekend!  I spent yesterday on the other side of the state in Novi at an Heirloom Productions stamp show and came home with lots of new goodies that I can't wait to play with! :0)

Today I am playing along with the Tag You're It Challenge, and they've combined the challenge along with another great challenge called CAS(E) this Sketch.  I had to think about this one for a few days, and then the ideas started flying!  And of course with my first grandchild due in just a little over 5 weeks (not that I'm counting or anything!!!), I had to do baby themed tag/card!  Take a look:

I started with my color scheme first, and with the nursery being gray and white with pops of purple (my son in law is a bit of an artist himself and drew pictures from one of his favorite childhood books "Harold and the Purple Crayon" and then did a framed collage above the crib), I used black, Smokey Slate, white, and Wisteria Wonder inks and cardstock.  I used PTI's Chevron Plate and black cardstock and cut off about a third of it before placing it over my white card base which I embossed with SU!'s new large dot ef.  My tag is a PTI Tag Sale #5 die that I stamped with PTI's "Background Basics: Super Chevron" in Smokey Slate, and then stamped 2 zebra's in black from SU!'s "Zoo Babies" set.  I also added some scattered dots from SU!'s "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set in Wisteria Wonder ink and then added a few light purple sequins and some washi tape at the bottom of the tag.  (also used the same washi tape to cover the mini clothespin at the top of the tag)  I finished with a die cut from Serendipity Stamps using black and Wisteria Wonder cardstocks.   Really love how this all came out and can't wait to attach it to one of the many gifts that I know will be going my daughter and son in laws way once the baby is born and we find out if it's a boy or girl! :0)

Both of these challenges are two week ones, so you have plenty of time to play along yet!  You can check out all the details for both right here and here.  There is LOTS of inspiration for both these challenges, so what are you waiting for?!! :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Monday! :0)
