I've noticed that often when I make a baby card, I tend to always put plaid on it. Not quite sure why I think babies & plaid go together, but it works! This card is no different from the other baby cards I've made here and here.

The stroller image, the plaid, and the sentiment are all by DRS Designs. I colored the stroller with pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol. I created the plaid myself using DRS Designs Open Plaid Background stamp and stamped it with pink ink. Since I used the "Cute as a Button" sentiment, you know I just had to add a button embellishment to it as a finishing touch!

Well, stay tuned to see lots of Halloween coming up here on my blog. Things are finally starting to slow down a bit for me this week & I'm heading to my stamping room right now!

Have a great day!

Smiles,
Jennifer
