Make It Monday #1: Go-To Sentiment Card


For the Third Day of Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Celebration, they are kicking off their "Make It Monday" Series. For details, visit Nichole's blog. I am so in love with the idea of using several sentiments surrounding the same theme to create a card - I never seem to have the right image to fill space on a card, but I sure do have plenty of sentiments!

I went with a baby card for my first crack at this concept.

It was more challenging than I thought it would be to get all the sentiments arranged just right, but I had a lot of fun working on this card and will definitely be using this idea on cards in the future!

Hope you are having a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!

I love that you chose to make this a baby card..gee, why would you have babies on the mind? Just kidding! I love that you kept all of the sentiments the same color except the one large one...sure held it 'pop' off the card!

Such a sweet card Anika! Pefect baby girl design and yes, you are right about this challenge being harder than it looks - glad we've got a week to do it in. But you have mastered it perfectly.
