Yesterday I completed a card for a boy, and I decided to add a companion baby girl card to my inventory. I used the same Debbie Mumm papers, but in pink. I cut apart the letters to add to the banner (for the sketch). I usually forget to add glitter, but I did Stickle the letters and the button brads. Ribbon and tiny pink crystals complete the card.
This is a feminine little girl card for: http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/

Once again, I am working on building up my inventory. This will be the only baby card for now! Not much stamping, but I keep looking for ways to use the adorable Debbie Mumm DP - I have a lot, I think it is cute, but it is a challenge to use. I cheated a bit, and used the same pattern for the bg, but I turned the right hand panel on its side - works fine as it would hardly show. Maybe I should do a similar one in pink. I have very few suitable baby images. I used edging scissors for some of the edges.
I used some fiber (something on a spool) to complete this challenge: http://ribboncarouselchallenge.blogspot.com
The sketch is here: http://seemsalittlesketchy.blogspot.com/
For this challenge, I used the word "baby", and had a theme of baby, boy and the color blue: http://shoppingourstash.blogspot.com/ I have had the fibers for a very long time, and the Debbie Mumm DP has been in my stash for over a year.
This is not the kind of card I usually make, but I am quite happy with the results.
Here is a challenge to use no designer paper, so the panels use the textile CB and repeated stamping of the word "Faith" (ODB): http://www.ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/search/label/Shining%20the%20Light%20Challenge
This calls for a card based on a favorite word: http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com/
I based mine on this sketch: http://dancinginpajamas.blogspot.com/
Dry embossing is called for here: http://craftsandmechallenges.blogspot.com/
I used white and light peach cs. Some ink is a light coral, and the main image is a light rust.
Stamps are ODB and part of a dollar sentiment stamp - the complete phrase is Just For You but that did not fit on a small oval so I improvised. The die cuts are Nesties ovals and eyelet circles. Light coral ribbon is the finishing touch.

I used a Stamping Bella image, Belinda Bumbleboots. She is colored with chalk pencils and gel pen highlights. The paper is by Debbie Mumm.
This illustrates the song "Singing in the Rain" - (I fondly recall that and many other musicals): http://clearitoutchallenge.blogspot.com/ (My stash items - the ribbon and dp - I have a lot and it is going slowly!)
I selected Marie's pretty card to case: http://theresmagicintheair.blogspot.com/

I like sympathy cards in soft colors and without too many embellishments. I felt this sketch worked well for me. I still have lots of this DP - from a pad from Big Lots. The image is Hampton Art, and sentiment Rubber Stampede (I really need more sympathy sentiments - I should have had a smaller one here.) I have had my SU Stampin' Spots for a long time and most are still good. This is Brocade Blue. I added some clear crystals.
I chose one of the optional sketches - thttp://sundaysketchandstamp.blogspot.com/
I used a pastel blue palette: http://stampinsistersinchrist.blogspot.com/
