MU#4--Lets Get Punch "Baby" with Kim!

Happy Friday everyone! Its time for another great challenge from the Mashup crew and this week our challenge comes from Kim! Lets see what Kim has to say:

It's Kim here, and I have a fun challenge for you! I work for a non-profit Christian ministry...and we help mommies and babies! I LOVE babies!! And I love making baby themed cards...for a new born, for a first birthday, even for the first time mom while she is still pregnant! Feel free to make other non-card baby-themed projects.

Now, part 2...Last night was literally the night of a major fund raiser for the ministry, and I have been working long hours trying to get things just right. I am generally a night-owl, but with the extra stress, I have been a little punchy there's the inspiration for the second part of the challenge!! Bring out your punches...special shapes, pretty borders and corners...even dies and sizzlits that you crank through your Big Shot. Can't wait to see what you create...Time to get Punchy, Baby!!

Isnt this a cool challenge? I'll tell you what, it definitely challenged me! I love babies, but really dont make any baby cards, and then I dont use my dies or punches that much either, so I was really out of my comfort zone! I sat there thinking about it and remembered a card my friend Tera had made for a swap we were in. I grabbed that out of my stash, and went looking for a tutorial, and this is the one I used.

Now, I originally started my card out intending it to be for a boy, since one of my daughters best friends is due to have a baby boy in about a week. It looks like somewhere along the way my brain had a different idea and the finished product is definitely girly. Oooops!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Punch Bunch
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: Marina Mist, Bashul Blue, Certainly Celery, Summer Sun
Accessories: Small Tag punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, Scallop Circle punch, Whisper White ribbon, brads, sponge

Head over to The Friday Mashup and link up your creation!! Make sure you link directly to your project though please, not just to your blog, and if you're uploading to any online gallery use FM04. Cant wait to see all the great cards!
