Cirque du baby..

Hello everyone! Happy Monday. I hope the start of your week has been good. You know today is a special day! Nooo....not Valentine's Day! It's Papertrey release night tonight! lol.  Have you guys been keeping up with all of the festivities? Amazing prizes and some great product coming out tonight. I will for sure be up ready to purchase when the clock strikes 11 Central!

So, onto today's card. I used the sketch from this week's Card Patterns sketch, but I flipped it. Here is the original sketch:





And here is how I oriented it:





Just kinda flipped it on its side and here is the resulting card:





Ok, is it just me or does this baby card remind you of the circus? Haha!  It could just be me. I love the papers (My Mind's Eye), and love the way they appeal to me as a baby card, but it was the first thing I thought of once the card was done. :)

Well, that's it from me. I am back at work today feeling a bit better...enough to go back to work anyway. Thanks for stopping by...

I LOVE this card! Those colors are so unexpected for a baby card but they are so cheerful and I LIKE! I see some woodgrain peeking out too1
