That card is just DUCKY!

I rarely make cards 2 days in a row with the same stamp set but I absolutely love the new Wagon Full of Fun set from Stampin Up. This set is just too much fun and very versatile. I love coloring the images! They are smooth edged and have nice, defined areas in which to add color and shading. My favorite! Today, I used the adorable duck image. The set includes a really cute sentiment that says "Lucky Duck!" but I saved it for another time. Here is my card. The 2nd photo is of the inside of the card.

I followed the sketch for Mojo Monday Week #80 and I love it. It is a nice sketch for using coordinate DSPs, especially stripes, and it works nicely when you want to include ribbon on your card. My papers all came from Martha Stewart's Playful Blues 12x12 pad. I am going to finish this pad very soon. I have used a lot of it since they work so well for springtime layouts and cards. The duck image panel is cut with my Nestabilities Curved Rectangles die set. I love this set but I have one complaint. I wish they came in 1/8inch increments like the other sets. I find a 1/4in border used with this shape to be too much. In my opinion, it just looks funny. Maybe they will design large and small versions for this one like they have for the more basic shapes. Or maybe Spellbinders could care less what I think! :D

My sentiments, both inside and outside, were printed on my computer. I listed the font and RGB code below. Thank you very much for stopping by my blog on this lovely spring day.

  3. How sweet! Love the colors you used. Perfect for baby!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my butterfly card. That card measures 6 1/2 X 3 1/4 and I did find an envelope that was left over from a set of money envelopes that works okay, it's a bit too tall, but hopefully, that will help protect that butterfly better. Thanks so much for your offer to send me one though, much appreciated! Have a great week!!

  5. Love the idea of using a duck that was originally in an Easter set for a baby card! You help us see the versatility in our investments!
