Blue & Yellow Baby ~ DD51 & JAI164

This card is for Dynamic Duos 51 & Just Add Ink 164.
The minute I saw the color combo from DD I thought baby boy.  I had also seen some cards floating around the internet using the That's The Ticket set in a similar manner.  To incorporate the tickets into the sketch, I had to use a 5 1/2"x11" card base.  They fit very nicely on it! 
I'll let you in on a little secret.....the stars were not part of my original plan.  I initially put the bow and corduroy brad on the top of the circle but decided I didn't like the way it looked.  When I pulled it off, it took a little paper with it.  I was more satisfied with the bow below the sentiment, but now I needed something to cover up my mistake.  Stars to the rescue!  They actually work out well with the baby boy theme.  It turned out to be a happy accident! 
Here's a list of all my supplies....
Stamps: Word Play, That's The Ticket
Paper: Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Stars #2 die, Ticket Punch, Corduroy Brad, Daffodil Seam Binding Ribbon, Scallop Circle dies, Circles #2 Die, Shimmer spray
Thanks for taking a peek!
