Crafty Boots - Babies

Hello everyone.  It is time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges.  This time, the theme is 'Babies'. 

I have been doing a lot more of my card elements digitally lately.... ever since I started using Craft Artist Professional to draw my own digi stamps.  It was a world I had never really explored or embraced other than the odd card or background etc.  Anyway, as I am becoming more familiar with the software, I am able to achieve the effects I want for my cards.  At the end of the day, I will never give up my 'dimensional' crafting.  I am way to addicted to papers and embellishments!  I do see myself incorporating more digital elements however, if for no other reason than everything can be customized just the way I want it.

Enough blathering .... here is my card.

and here is the inside...

I used CAP to design and layer the card front and inside.  The cute little carriage is a free digi stamp from Broken Box Stock.  I used the CAP software to size them so I could have a bigger one on the card front and a little bitty one on the inside.  Both carriages are colored with Flex Markers.  I added the little yellow flower on the front and really that is all I had to do.  I have gotten much braver with putting digi stamps directly into designed card fronts etc.  On this card I could have easily printed the carriage on the front separately and attached it as a topper, but I thought - why use an extra sheet of my Crafty Boots Deluxe Crafter's Card.  I love this card for coloring, and it is also lovely for printing with my inkjet printer.  The colors really are true, and that is really important to me.

Okee dokee.... that is really all I have for today other than to ask you to consider popping over to the main blog to see the beautiful work from the rest of the design team and to link up you baby themed projects for a chance to win a prize.  Might as well go for it, right?

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
My Heart Pieces - Anything Goes
The Squirrel and the Fox - Kids or Babies

Thanks for looking and do please leave a comment if you like what I have done.

Take care and I hope you can visit again soon.

What a fabulous card - I had no idea it was digital - I haven't embraced digital crafting but this took me by surprise - it's lovely x Thank you for introducing me to something new x

Awww, you've proven again how clever you are. I love the card and that it is "colour neutral" - or should that be gender neutral? -with the greens, browns and yellows so it suits boy babies and girl babies. And I love the small image repeated on the insert. xxx
