Banana Split Sunday - A Sketch Challenge

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge at 2RedBananas. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. It seems like this is a favorite for many. It definitely gives you a starting point for your card. For me, it also helps me decide what stamps to use, because of the size and shapes of the elements.

We have a new grandson that is due in January along with twin great nieces also due in January and a great nephew who was born just last week!! It's been a very blessed time for babies in our family!! So, I chose to make a baby card (actually I've made a few of them lately :)

Stamps: Precious Bundles - 2RedBananas
Ink: Versafine Onxy Black, Chalk Ink - Creamy Brown
Imaginisce - Baby Powder Collection
Pink Velvet ribbon - May Arts, Dew Drops - Island Blossom, Shimmerz - Candlelight, Nesties, Copics, white Inkssentials pen

Be sure to check out the design team's creations!

Have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by!

So sweet and serene! I love the paper-piecing and the knotted ribbon. I am amazed at how perfectly aligned that sentiment is with those stripes! Even when I use a jig, sometimes I struggle w/ that! This is precious!

This card is so sweet. I love how you used the ribbon as your three elements across the top. Great idea.
