Another Baby Card!

So there seems to be something in the water at the moment; I have so many baby cards to make! I think I might switch to bottled water for a while, just to be safe ;)

Today's card is for the sketch challenge over at Just Add Ink. I have now discovered that my camera has more than one setting, and that there is a fabulous program called that allows me to touch up pics that need some tweaking (even in alternate photo settings!) ;) lol So my pics today are a little different to my "point and shoot" pics so far. I have a looooong way to go, but I'm off to a decent start :)

I have CASEd a card I received when I got married, as well as a sample from the current Stampin' Up! catalogue. I have used the sketch on the outer panel.

Here are some pics of the insert

Just For You...

Today's card is for the Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add Delys challenge. There were so many beautiful choices to CASE on Delys' blog that it was hard to choose just one! However, I picked a card from the Just Add Yellow challenge back in May.
Here is the original card by Delys:

And here is my CASE:

All products used are Stampin' Up! I have used Pool Party and Whisper White cardstock, the Precious Butterflies Hostess Stamp Set (for both sentiment and butterflies), Pool Party and Basic Black Ink, and Rhinestones. I fussy-cut the butterflies and rounded the corners of the card for some extra softness.
