Baby Gift card

I posted the gift I was sending to my friend's daughter earlier this week, tonight I made a card to go with it. I saw a card on Paige Dolecki's blog today that I really liked so I attempted to make one similar. I used Sweet Pea PP with Baby Impressions and Baby Steps stamp sets. I stamped the baby feet tone on tone on the cardstock then stamped the little clothesline on the cardstock underneath. Oh Yeah, I forgot, I used Ms. on the Go stamp set for the baby carriage and mom. I paper pieced the carriage and mom's dress. Used pearls for her earrings and colored in her shoes with CTMH marker. I used the wrong color at first so her shoes are a little bit darker. I know, I shouldn't have pointed that out , but I can't help myself. The frames on the photo are a Fiskars punch.
Thanks for tuning in.

  7. Leslie,
    How do you get your paper piecing so perfect??

    And what color do you use for the flesh tone? Mine always comes out looking too pink!
