***Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 81 is just below...just scroll down!***

Happy Saturday! It's snowing in New York...I thought it would never snow. It seemed like winter was passing us by without anything. Oh well, at least it's not so bad. Just a light 4 inches so far. I wanted to make a card and looked through my favorite challenges for something to join. I found the beautiful color combination over at CR84FN46

It reminded me of a baby birthday party theme I saw over at Pinterest. So I took out some of my Papertrey Ink stamps and started working. Here's what I came up with...

I combined some stamps and some die cuts and layered things around. I kept the colors pretty neutral with just a little pop of pink and yellow. Sometimes I just get so caught up using the stamps from my DT stamp companies that I forget to reach for my Papertrey Ink stamps. It was what got me stamping and card making in the first place. 

I still can't fix my pictures. I've tried to tinker around photoshop but it's just not working. Know of any good ideas or any tutorials on you tube I can work with? I have a light box and 3 lights on it...but it still looks so dark. It's so frustrating. 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you all again soon.
