Baby Time at Crafty Creations Challenges

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Crafty Creations challenge, and this week we are looking for your baby-related projects. Our challenge this week is generously sponsored by Beccy's Place, and I've used one of her digis for my card: 

As soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted to paper-piece the letters and shape the card around them. All the many patterned papers come from Echo Park's Little Girl line, and I so like that I could make a card suitable for a girl OR a boy using them. I played with a few ideas to make the balloons more, well, balloon-like, but in the end decided I liked them best keeping them the same as the rest of the design. I did trace the balloon strings with a clear glitter pen. With so many happy patterned papers, I think I'll enter this in Moxie Fab World's Mixy-Matchy style challenge.
Link up your baby-inspired project for your chance to choose three images from this week's fabulous sponsor! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Echo Park Little Girl patterned paper, atyou Spica clear glitter pen

I LOVE this card! Shaping the card around the letters...brilliant! And those patterns are awesome for either gender. I need to get some baby cards made so I KNOW I'll be playing along this week!

I don't think I have ever paper pieced but this card might just be inspiration enough. It is so cute and happy and bright. Beautifully done.

LOVE is exactly what I felt when I saw this! The papers are so fun and cheery and the way you trimmed the bottom of the sentiment is perfect!

OMG, this is fabulous. I love the way you trimmed away the bottom of the card. SO awesome.

These patchwork letters are so decorative and you picked such great colors and papers to paper piece this baby card!
