Round or Square?

The Mojo Sketch gave us two options this week, round or square! I chose square, along with a fun new color challenge, Curtain Call Act 14! Oh boy, was this a challenge for me to use these colors together! They look so pretty together, but WOW it was a struggle for me, but I hope it turned out okay! It was about time I made a baby boy card! Girl cards just SEEM so much easier! Hehe!
Hopefully I'll have time this week to try the round layout as well! Scallop Circle die! Whoohoo! This was a fun sketch and I liked moving things around! I played with using flowers versus buttons, but landed on buttons! The boat from the Stampin' Up! Nursery Necessities set inspired me and I made my own with punches rather than stamping the image and cutting it out! My 'Boat' is made with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch (cut in half) and the 'Sails' are triangles I cut out after punching squares with the 1-3/8" Square Punch!
