Peek-a-boo Baby - NAC15 & JAI139

Todays card is for Nacho Average Challege 15, a sketch challenge.  It also encompasses Just Add Ink #139 which says to use something new.  My something new is my Peekaboo Frames die!
  When the Peekaboo Frames die first came out last year and they were showing it used in making advent calendars and such, I just couldn't see where that would fit in with my stamping.  Then, recently while flipping through the Catalog and Idea Book, I saw a card made with the Peekaboo frames and another stamp set that contained little images.  The idea of making a baby card with this same concept, only using my Baby Bundle set came to mind.  I basicly bought that stamp set for the cute little stroller image and didn't think I'd really ever use any of the other stamps.  Once I had the idea, I had to purchase the Peekaboo Die right away.  AND THEN, along comes NAC sketch challenge.  It was a match made in heaven! 
 I tried to use neutral colors that could go either boy or girl, since I don't have anyone in particular to give this card to.  I was just so excited about this idea and getting to use those stamp images that I thought I'd probably never use otherwise!
Here are some pictures inside the peekaboo frames.
Here's a list of supplies I used.....
Stamps: Baby Bundle, Sweetness Unlimited
Paper: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Polkadot Parade DP
Ink: Same as above
Accessories: Peekaboo Frames die, Crumb Cake Taffeta ribbon, Argyle EF, 1 1/4" Square punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Three Heart punch, Modern Label punch
Thanks for taking a peek!
