Mojo 100 Baby

My girlfriend has baby number 4 on the way. WOW! I can't believe 4. Since she's like me and waits to be surprised by the gender, I decided to go baby neutral colors. I love to start a card with a sketch, so I went with Mojo 100. If you like sketches too, go check it out, all this week in celebration of the 100th sketch, there will be a new sketch every day.
I've seen these cute baby buggies pop up here and there, so I will not take credit for the idea, but I will take credit for kreating my own :)
*I used my Circle Scissor Plus to kreate my Whisper White circle and then cut out a pie shape.
*Ran it through my Big Shot with my sm polka dot Background Texturz Plate. Instead of raised dots, I flipped my image. Randomly in a few 'holes' I added some color with my Pastel chalks.
*Using my Eyelet Border Punch, I kreated my buggies eyelet ruffle.
*The Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit die was run through the Big Shot and a piece used to form the handle (cute right?)
*No small circle punch for my wheels :( - no problem, I traced the bottom of my Dauber for the perfect fit. Added my Flower Brad to become my wheel spokes. A black sharpie pen kreates the 'axel'. A little basic gray sponging highlights the edges of the wheel
*The buggy was placed on dimensionals on a Bashful Blue rectangle and a Certainly Celery Scallop using the Big Shot and Scallop #2 die
*The buggy layers were placed on a standard Whisper White card base 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 scored at the top and layered with So Saffron and the polka dots from Cottage Wall DSP
*Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon hide the seam between my two papers.
*A central bow and a dangling Metal Edge Tag. Isolated the word 'baby' from the sentiment 'hello baby' in the Teeny Tiny Wishes set using my Bashful Blue Marker. Added a dash more using my Certainly Celery Marker around the inside of the metal edge. Isn't it a cute accent!?
So how's my mojo? I'd love to know your thoughts. Leave me a comment and let me know. Happy Stamping
