A Baby Card - Template

A few months back, many of you know that I won the Guest Star Stamper contest on Papertrey Ink.  The catagory I won, was for using their templates.  My prize was a free set of the next months template release.  (I heart templates).  However, when the new templates were released, I wasn't sure I would like the new "In Shape" template sets.  I don't own a Cricut (yet) and wondered how these shapes would work by cutting by hand.  The set I won is called "Rock-A-Bye Baby" and comes with 4 very cute designs.

Fast forward to last week...One of my son's friends just had a baby boy and thought it was the perfect time to try one of the baby templates.  I am so thrilled at how this turned out.  It is one of the cutest cards I've ever made and was suprisingly easy to cut out.  I printed out the template on Vintage Cream Cardstock then stamped it with the Polka Dot Basics set.  I used the template to trace the ear on Bitty Dots Patterned Paper in Ocean Tides.  Then I traced around the feet in some Chocolate Brown scraps and used my Stampin Up scalloped punch to make the feet.  I then cut everything out and assembled it.  I then used one of the Googlie Eyes I had in my craft stash and a little bow on the tail.  I hope you like it.
Thanks for taking a peek and letting me know what you think.
