Colour Q #90

Another new challenge I wanted to play with, ColourQ.  Here is the colour board for the current challenge.
I decided to make a baby card today, I never make them, but I am sure someone out there in the OWH world will need one!
Paper: PTI; Neenah
Ink: Adirondack Denim; CTMH (Heavenly Blue; Crystal Blue); Memento Lady Bug
Stamps: PTI (Star Prints)
Other: Quickutz embossing folder

After stamping the three stars and trimming them I added some glossy accents here and there, kids love texture!  My daughter stills loves to feel the frayed edges of her blankie lightly touching her face!

I gave some dimension to the sentiment strip by not adhering it completely and elevating the centre a bit.

It's a simple card, but I like it, I hope you do to!  Thanks for coming over to look, I really appreciate that you have made the time!

Wishing you a blast of a day!

Great card, B! I love that even with the brighter red that the blues still remain soft looking. Is the bg embossed? I think I see dots- really like that part too :)

So pretty! This would qualify for the Pals Paper Arts challenge too, which is stars! I love this set and it looks great with the CQC colors!
BTW, do you have relatives in Pennsylvania? You have an unusual last name and I have friends with that name too!
