My First Challenge

Ok, so I am still a newbie at card making and everything, but I decided I would try a challenge this week! I needed to make a card for a baby shower that I am going to this weekend and even though these aren't "baby" colors, I still wanted to try and make it work. It was also a lot of colors to try and make work together, but I think that they turned out looking really good together! (Click on the picture to see links to other entries)The baby shower is for some friends of mine I had back before I went to pharmacy school about 6 years ago! I heard through a friend that they had just adopted twins after battling with infertility. I, rudely, invited myself to the shower that a mutual friend of ours was going to be throwing them :0) They are going to need all they can get, especially since they were blessed with twins so I figured why not invite myself!
Supplies:
*Paper: Basic Grey Offbeat collection, American Crafts alaCart collection, random stuff from my stash
*Stamps: Part Ink Lowercase - Stampabilities
*ink: Scarley from ColorBox
*Stickers: Flowers from Sandylion Essentials
The stroller image I found online, printed and cut out a pattern to trace around and cut them out myself.
