Circle Easel Card for Baby

Baby cards can be a challenge for me.  I always want something neutral, but sometimes green and yellow just feel stale to me. This time, to freshen it up a bit, I added Crumb Cake to the mix and then did a really fun shape and fancy fold:

Colors: Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Pool Party.  Stamps: Easy Events and Delightful Dozen.  Big Shot: Scallop Circle, Clear Circle, 3" Circle,  Circle #2, Polka-Dot Embossing Folder.  Punch: 2-3/8" Scallop Circle.  Accessories: So Saffron Taffeta Ribbon, Many Marvelous Markers.

The shape and "easel" fold of the card were completely inspired by Yapha Mason.  She filled in for me a few weeks back on the Stampin' Addict Sketch Challenge 130 and this was the sketch.  She turned her cute card into an easel so I knew I had to try that too. 

This is another card that will be featured at my Spring Fling Stampin' Buffet.  Let me know if you would like to come and make one this Saturday.  I hope to see you there!

Oh, how sweet! The color scheme is not one I would have considered on my own, but it looks great. TFS

there's something sweet and innocent about little rubber duckies! On an easel really sets it off!
