Color Dare #41 with SSW #204

Hello! I have a project I made for the Saddle/Cocoa challenge at Color My Heart. The challenge is to choose your own color, but only use Saddle and Cocoa as your neutrals (white is also allowed). I chose Lilac Mist, because I thought it was a great baby boy color (and I have a ton of it!). So I made a layout for my skinny 9-month-old. The picture of him was taken about 9 months ago:

I used the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays, and chose to make it simple without a lot of fancy details. I will make the other side next, so be watching for it.

We'd love to have you join us over at Color My Heart, so come on by and give it a try!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Lilac Mist, Cocoa, Saddle
Stamps: Life's a Jungle, Field Trip Alphabet
Ink: Cocoa, Saddle, Lilac Mist
