Stepping in Almost White

A Card made for the Almost White challenge at Creative Harmony. The Base Cardstock has to be white or ivory, no more than two other colours, using very little of one of those. You are allowed to enter twice, any kind of papercrafts,  but one entry must be a card or a tag. You have until 23rd of September to enter for a chance to win the great prizes she has on offer.  

This is my first attempt at a Side Step Dresser card. I've seen them around blogland a few times and liked them, but was inspired by Bab's Baby Shower Dresser Card to give it a go- it was quick, easy and a lot of fun. I followed the YouTube Tutorial to make this, you can find it HERE

 She also has some great pictures of the Sock Monkey Baby Shower they held, and a Diaper Bike (new to me), if anyone looking for Baby Shower inspiration.

Sorry the pix aren't up to much again, above is photo Hubby took, the two below are scanned. I used pearlized white cardstock, I think, Bazzil. The 'hanger', 'door handles', and name plaque are chipboard pieces (Papermania) coloured with versamagic chalk inks. I've used a headpin with pearl bead as the wire for the 'hanger'. The pink card is recycled from the back of an old card, is pretty shimmery, pearled. The lace and bow are stash and the stickers were painted white with acrylic paint.

Hi Linda,
your dresser is amazing. Wonderful idea and so lovely.
Good luck with the challenge.
talking about challenges, I have just put up on my blog my entrance into Dawns challenge. I hope I did all the right things in my wording of it.
When you get time pop over and check I haven't made a big boob boob. I think there is a pun there.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Linda, this made me smile because I really like "different" cards. Reminded me of a card I made some years ago in the shape of a cradle - wonder if I can remember how I did it? I've been away for few days so I will be off on a blog hop soon! Christine x

Linda, this is really gorgeous. I haven't had any reason to do a baby card in a while, but this looks like something I wouldn't mind trying. I really love the colors you've used, too. Hugs, dj
