Bundle of Joy.....

Hello everyone: I haven't made any Baby cards in a long while so, here is one more to add to my stash, I never know when I'll need one, especially when my daughters ask me for a card with just a few hours in advance. I'm linking this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

The front of this card is made with one of the cutest Baby sets ever from Stampin' Up! called
"Baby Bundle" that came out in the 2010-2011 Catalog (retired­čś×). I love this cute and adorable images, so perfect for Baby cards of all kinds.
I stamped it on Strathmore mixed media watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers in very soft colors. I like to make Baby cards gender neutral unless we know in advance what the future parents are having.

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, this saves me a lot of time when I mail my cards.

The inside of this card was stamped with another adorable and sadly retired set from Stampin' Up! called "The Best of Brides and Babies" that came out in May of 2013.  I wanted to keep the inside also very soft so I stamped the sentiment and the row of Teddy Bears in Gray Stazon ink then colored the images with Prismacolor pencils.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.
