Baby onesie shaker card

I needed to make a baby congrats card and thought I should fancy it up, which, in my mind, means to layer it up, so I attempted this beautifully layered Mojo Monday sketch:

Layering is always such a difficult decision for me and I have to admit I paired many combinations of the pattern paper together before deciding on this final version:

In retrospect, I wonder if, instead of the faded beige, I should have chosen a pink tone-on-tone buttons pattern paper for more baby motifs.

I am happy with the bow though! Followed the tutorial here: using some sheer ribbon left over from my wedding invitations last year, which is serendipitous because the new dad was the best man at the wedding.

Almost forgot about the main attraction - the shaker onesie. Die-cut from Taylored Expressions' Little Bits - Onesie, and filled with red seed beads and some hearts / stars confetti Julee Tilman of Verve Stamps added to my package - thank you! 

I am submitting this to:

  5. Jeanie, this onesie shaker card is so cute! Awesome job with the sketch! I cannot follow sketches. Maybe it's because I can't work with pattern papers. Quite challenging for me. But you did a beautiful job! Have a lovely evening.
