I’ve been thinking on the Create with Connie & Mary color challenge all week and finally came up with something tonight 🙂 I am also entering the button challenge at The Paper Players, they were the perfect embellishment for my card.






I saw that the Alphabet Press embossing folder is one of the weekly deals and decided to use that for the first time. I bought it last year when it was a deal. Using that folder led me to making a baby card using Zoo Babies.


2014 Card 120 - SU Zoo Babies

(Ignore the black strip at the top, I can’t seem to get rid of the shadows in my pictures!)


I used the Tangelo Twist as a card base and on the lion.  I embossed the folder using Bermuda Bay and added Basic Gray buttons. I finished the buttons off with Bermuda Bay twine and added a sentiment stamped in Basic Gray. I added a second neutral color with Baked Brown Sugar as a ground for the lion.


Thanks for visiting!
