Stampin' Up! Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel and Picture This make cute New Baby Cards

Ok, so I finally finished up my assignment this evening, it is all parcelled up and ready to be sent on its merry way to Armidale in the morning. I have also done the speaking component of the assignment, which I had been procrastinating about since I am all sinus-y from the flu.... So, to reward myself for actually getting the assignment in on time, completed, I headed into the craft room. Some of you may know that my older sister is heavily pregnant, due to have the baby at any time... She knows she is having a little girl.... Amanda, my sister was the biggest tomboy growing up. I think from the time she was allowed to pick her own clothes, I have only seen her in a dress three times... Her year 10 formal, her year 12 formal, and her wedding... So, when she found out she was having a girl, she told us not too much pink, unless it is the bright kind.... Here is the card I have made using her specification....
I have used Crumbcake, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze and So Saffron. The bottom third of the card is the jumbo wheel Classic Stars, which is stamped tone on tone, then I have used my Big Shot to create the polka dots on the Melon Mambo section, which was sponged around the corners. The Baja Breeze has been stamped with the jumbo wheel as well in Baja Breeze and the shape is the Decorative Label Punch. The sentiment was coloured using my Stampin' Write markers and is from the retired stamp set Picture This. A little bit of non-SU! ribbon, and a few buttons finish this card off. 
I am entering this into 2 new for me challenges, the first is the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #12 from an artist I follow fairly closely, Iwona (Chupa) I love her style, it is just so different to mine... The second challenge is the Wplus9 Colour Cue {15} Challenge. A number of people I follow participate in this challenge, so I thought it was high time I joined them.... 
I must dash, it is my bed time....Until next time, Happy Stamping!

Haha, we certainly know how hard it was to get Amanda to even wear anything slightly feminine in the earlier days & still now... although she has got a couple of girlie shirts & one is a hot pink t-shirt!!
Great job Jessums,
Love ya,

Oh, this is so fun, Jess! LOVE what you've done with the star theme, and being a bit of a tomboy myself, I think you picked the perfect shade of pink. Your sister should be proud! Thanks so much for playing along with our Color Cue this month!
