Celebrating a First Tooth

     My children (and grandchildren, for that matter) are far too old for me to be thinking about the great occasion of a "First Tooth !!" but while reorganizing some of the storage in my house, I did run across a little plastic pill bottle with baby teeth in it.  As I read the faded label, written in my mother's handwriting so many years ago, I discovered that throughout my childhood she had saved each of my baby teeth as I lost them to the new, permanent teeth.  So, I'm guessing that the "first tooth" coming in was probably important enough to celebrate.  In any case, this card celebrates that great occasion.  :-D

     The image is from the Progressive Challenge on Sasayaki Glitter's Facebook site.  It's called "Baby Boy with Monkey."

I started with the sketch from The Outlawz
and colors suggested by Double D.


    I colored him with my Promarkers, then cut him out with a hexagon die from QuicKutz to match up with the hexagon paper I had chosen.  The patterned papers came from Recollections and everything was matted with dark chocolate CS.  The card front was embossed using my "Linen" folder and I added the two pearls for some simple embellishment.  They also give some great texture, as do all the layers.

     If a design can be simple with all those patterns on it, this one certainly is it.  :-D
