Bella & Bronte Challenge

Greetings everyone!

I wanted to post my stair step card using "would" or "wood" for Mo's Design Team challenge.  I recently have become an aunt again for the (well with 16 siblings I lose count).  Caden Adrian Thomas was born on February 6th, 7 pounds and 15 ounces, and 20 inches long.  He and his two other brothers, Caleb and Karlton were the inspiration for this card.  I wondered how the older brothers would react to having a little baby brother in house with them.

So I combined two of Mo's digi stamps, the "terrible twos" and "moving out" and decided that the older brothers would probably make it known that they were there first.  I added "wood" paper to resemble the floor and added a "teddy bear" charm on the ribbon.  This card was a lot of fun to color and I had to laugh at the thought of my nephews telling baby Cade, "I was here first," as they collected all their toys and belongings to keep him from getting to them.  Also, the little "moving out" digi looks like he has an air of priviledge as he struts with his bottle in mouth and belongings dragging behind him (totally oblivious to his little brother screaming in the background).  Too too adorable!!

I hope you enjoy and thanks for visiting.


There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
