It's A Riley Design Team Challenge!

Ready for another Riley Design Team Challenge? 
This challenge came from Laurie Clout.  It is a
color challenge to use Pastel Colors.

Please join us and add a link in the comments
to your Pastel Riley Project.  If you post at
Splitcoast Stampers be sure and use the
keyword RILEY 0510 so we can find it easily!

Oooh pastels!!!!   Makes me think of
one of life's very special moments.... a new baby!

Here are two quick and easy Baby gift cards.
The safety pen shapes are from the Wild Cards Cricut
cartridge cut at 5".  I also cut the blackout to
line the cut out safety pin shape.
Add an adorable Copic colored Baby Riley with some pop
dots. Then top it off with a computer generated saying
held on with tiny wood clothes pins.
I pen stitched around the safety pin shape and added a bow
to the saying.
The papers are by K & Company. They are the Itsy Bitsy
Baby Girl and Baby Boy paper pads in 8.5 xy 8.5 size.
Design Tip:  Look for mat stacks and smaller paper pads.
They are usually a fraction of the cost of the big 12x12 pads
and the prints are sized perfectly for cards. 
These shapes were actually cut on this 8.5 x 8.5 paper with room
to spare!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the other
Designers!  I just love challenge day and seeing what everyone
has posted!
