Baby Boy Rhino

  I've been all about the Zoo Babies set lately haven't I?  It's such a cute set how could you not use it for babies?  That and the fact that it's really the only baby set that I own!

  Our neighbors found out the other day that they are having a little boy.   After 3 girls that news was certainly exciting for them.  I had to make a card to go with a little gift for them.  How much more boy can you get than a rhino?

  This was a fun sketch from the ladies over at Freshly Made Sketches so I had to play along.  The angle of that bottom panel is really fun as I generally am very balanced and straight with my layouts.

  A bonus with this card is that I used up a bit of retired product.  The DSP is from the Sent With Love pack from last year and the red button is the retired style.

  The Island Indigo flag is embossed with the new Arrows embossing folder which I think goes well with the DSP pattern.

  I stamped the Rhino twice.  The first one I cut out with the square framelits and the second I cut out with my paper snips and popped up on the first rhino with dimensionals.  To get the horns a different color I used a blender pen to take away the Pool Party ink and then used the Island Indigo marker to re-color the horns.

  Hope you're having a fun weekend!  Ryan's Space Race rocket was not a big winner this morning but it was really fun to see all the designs and the excitement of the scouts.  On to designing Pinewood Derby car!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
