Funky Carriages

I am a baby card junkie, of course. I'll buy anything I see that I think will work on a baby card. I like 12 x 12 paper since if I'm clever I can get 6 cards from one sheet! But, I confess, I am not a fan of 'off' colors. There seems to be a lot of mauve, lime, and odd purple baby papers out there at the moment! I made two of these, and put the paper back in the file for another day~

Paper is Heidi Grace Shimmer Paper, Baby Buggies. I thought the Lockhart carriage looked similar to the funky carriages on the paper, even though they faced opposite ways, lol! The paper colors are weird, so I went to my 12 x 12 paper stash and found cs that is reasonably close. The green is Papertrey's Spring Moss; the blanket is colored in Prisma marker Limepeel which matches Spring Moss rather well! Sentiment is from SU. The girl card has cute little flowers, and the boy card has some Dew Drops. Those little flowers match Papertrey's Raspberry Fizz, and are from Savvy Stamps. They also make blue flowers that match Spring Rain (PTI)or Bashful Blue (SU) well, too! I used some clear Stickles on the sentiment and the carriages as well.

Sadly, I am still not well- although better!- and am off to the Dr. again today... wish me luck at getting better!

I know what you mean by "off" colors - but these are adorable. The colors look baby to me - very pretty. :)
