Oh Baby Baby Card for #GDP003

Its always fun when I get to play along in crafting challenges. The Global Design Project is by far my most favourite - not only are there challenges really cool but the Designer Team has some of my most favourite crafters - thanks for providing us with some awesome inspiration guys and gals!

I was inspired by the designers sketch over at the Global Design Project with challenge #GDP003
I went with a simple look for this card as I really wanted the letters to stand out and I think I have achieved that! Apart from loving that song "Push it" from Salt n Pepa - which is most definately not what the GDP had in mind with this challenge (they sing "ooh baby baby tonnes in the song!) - somehow I couldn't help but think of and maybe sing along out loud to this catchy song as I crafted... lol! Here is my card!
The real heroes of this card are the "Little Letters Thinlets" - an alphabet set of dies for your Big Shot. So awesome for creating your own sayings as I have done on this card.
It may look like I have glued the 'cut out' letters but in fact I have used the 'negative' and I lay a piece of Schoolhouse DSP underneath the white panel. To make the letters stand out I went around with my Basic Gray Stampin' Write marker and Candy dots!
