The book second from the left reminded me of the Tim Holtz distress ink colour Pumice Stone, so I set about using that as my 3 colours.
I started with an Ivory card base that I cut a scalloped border along the bottom, which I then stamped with the Dotty Stars Border stamp by Kaszazz, using Ice Blue Colorbox Chalk ink. I then edged the card with Pumice Stone and Broken China T.H distress inks. I cut a strip of ivory card, ran the paper distresser over it, and used the same distress inks to colour it all over. I double stitched the top and bottom of the strip before adhering it to the base card. I used an accent strip I've had in my stash since forever to cut the circle of baby hands out, which I ran the distresser around and inked slightly with the distress inks. I then mounted it onto another piece of ivory cardstock and freehand cut around the blue circle - which has any imperfections covered up by also running the paper distresser around. This circle piece is attached with Magic Mount, and the card was finished with 3 pearls.
