A JUGS3 Card and a New Grandchild!

I just scooted in under the daylight wire for this card today. Kept saying it wasn't going to happen again and then I got distracted. By this:

Meet my new grandchild, Cobalt, Colby for short. Redheadedson is the world's biggest dog fan and has waited until he graduated from college and got a job to get his own dog. He's a chemical engineer, this is an Australian Cattle dog, a Blue Heeler, hence the name Cobalt. Colby's seven weeks old, comes home as soon as he's old enough and Redheadedson is MORE than ready! He's known about it for weeks but didn't tell us until today. 

Meanwhile, the JUGS challenge this week was a color combination:

I find blues of any kind hard to work with so my card definitely emphasized the red and cream.

I used Papertrey's Winter Swirls (again - better learn to pick up a different stamp set!) and Basicgrey paper from a couple of season's ago. The ribbon is on sale at Michaels this week and the buttons are from Papertrey's new vintage mix. I adapted the sweater pattern from an old one I save published in Papercrafts a couple of years ago.

Thanks for reading! (If you're a dog fan - there are photos of our first grandchild and Emma in the post "Please Pardon the Interruption".)
