Baby Horatio in a Pink Pocket!!!

Another day, another challenge! I made this super cute
pocket card for the challenge for the Stampin' for the Weekend blog. It was to make a pocket card. I found this really cute idea and I knew that Baby Horatio from Paper Makeup was perfect for this! I wanted to make her pink because I LOVE pink! Pink and kraft paper together is yummy! I used my copic markers to color her in and she is so soft and sweet and sleepy! My friend Nancy did the same card style and you can see my cards "twin" here! Our daughters were at Gymboree and we got some stamp time, free of "helpers!"

On the inside of this card, I embossed pink flourishes and on the card, I added little flowers and some gems to match her sparkly cloud! I used Shimmerz on the cloud and I LOVE the effect that it has! Some clouds have a silver lining and this cloud IS a gold lining all over the place! I used the SU tab punch and a cute little rub on for the words. Then, I used the glitter pen to add the dots for some more sparkle! So check out the challenge when you can and play along!

Paper Makeup is sponsoring this weeks challenge and you have a chance at a fun and fabby prize! Thanks for stopping by!!!
