Waltzingmouse April Release - Nordic Baby

This is day two of the Waltzingmouse April new releases.  Yesterday we featured "My Kind of Guy" and today we are showing off the "Nordic Baby" set.  The set measures 3x4" but don't let that fool you it's packed with lots of opportunities.     You didn't think I was going to go through an entire release without a bow somewhere did you?  Thank goodness Claire was kind and gave us something girly to play with.  

Usually the first thing when I think baby is soft blues and pinks - but decided to take chances and made a girly one in hot pink and lime green. 
No worries - I made one for the little men too!  Renee convinced me that Navy is an under used color!   All this dark blue reminds me of denim and some osh kosh bigosh baby overalls (do they still make those?)
I added some ric rac (of course!), gingham and a little wood clip.
Betcha can't wait to see all the other designs made with this set!  Just click on the DT member names below.  If you want to start at the beginning here's a link to Claire's blog!

These cards are so sweet. What a fun way to welcome a baby.

Cathy Weber said...

I agree with Jinny from her comment above mine, you used such great colors, love the hot pink and yellow combo for your girl card. Those are super sweet little shoes and I love the stick pin in the polka dot bow. Your bow card looks so nice with the round image and that clothespin was a great touch to "man" it up!

Tosha Leyendekker said...

Both are just fabulous!! Love the bright fun colors of the first, and your second is just charming all laid out in blues!!

Marybeth said...
