Do these Diapers make my butt look big??

I woke up this morning with a funny feeling that I might had won something from Verve Stamp company. Sure enough!!! My name was at the very top of the WINNERS list over on their Splitcoast Stampers forum. Actually I won a new stamp set and two new singles that were just released last night. Not totally sure what category I won because Verve was celebrating their 2nd anniversary and had SO MANY contests going on, Which brings me to this sweet little card. I created it for a baby shower that I attended last night and I had used one of Verve's Anniversary Sketch challenges.

The stamps are by Shirley's 2 Girls (SG67 I'm Here) and that baby's diaper just screams to either be paper pieced or blinged out with glitter, dontcha think? I did paper piece his penant. The diaper script that I stamped onto his flag is from another set (Mother Knows Best), however the sentiment on the inside comes with this baby. I did alter it by inking and stamping in segments in order for it to fit onto that oval. (click on the photos for a bigger view)
On the inside of the card, I used one of the Martha Stewart punches over the Stampin Up scallop border punch. I folded my card so that the front is shorter than the back which allows the borders to peek out but not the ovals. If you haven't gone over to ABC Toys & Crafts lately, head over and check out all of the Newly Released Martha Stewart punches. Inkadinkado stamps & Prima Flowers are on sale at a 20% discount but that sale ends TODAY
REMINDER, the DEADLINE for the TWISTED THURSDAY sketch challenges have been EXTENDED
