Oooooh-weeee! I'm guest designing for Tuesday Alchemy for the month of September and I'm so stoked! We've got some fun challenges coming up, so come play with us! My first DT inspiration project is a baby girl congratulations card that I created for Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #30 - Anything Goes, sponsored by Fabric.com and Broken Box Designs! I chose the absolutely adorable single "Peas In A Pod" digi by Broken Box Designs for my card which, believe it or not, is a freebie on their site. Freebie or not, I knew I had to have it because it went perfectly with the 'little sweet pea' paper I had in my stash!

I paper-pieced the baby pea image with green and very pale pink, and matted it on pink, green and black to go with the bold outline of the image. I double-matted the background paper on ivory and pink to go with those soft colors. I kept the theme fairly simple, using a couple dainty pink ribbons, a baby bottle charm and pink flat-back pearls. I love the way it turned out!
