Or a well dressed baby!

The ColorQ Challenge this week has some bright and pretty colors.

Then when I saw the SU-Only challenge to make a baby card, I knew just what I wanted to do.

I bought the Baby Tees wheel a while back because I didn't have any baby stamps and thought this would work well.  It did after some practice.  It was a bit of a challenge to get the right pressure on the wheel to get a good clear print.

Then, since I needed one each of 4 colors, I rolled off a line of each color. 

Then I had to do some cutting.

The hangers were really a challenge!

I gave up trying to keep them intact and cut some from the tees that didn't stamp well.

I dyed some white grosgrain ribbon by dragging it over the Tangerine Tango ink pad while holding it with a piece of Stampn' Sponge.  I had to pull it through a few times but once it dried, it looked pretty good.  

This card is 3" x 6".  I very seldom make a card this size but I needed the length to fit all the tees on it.  I think it's the perfect size to hold a gift card or some paper money.  (Isn't any card perfect to hold a gift card or money?) 

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Baby Tees Wheel
Ink: Taken with Teal, Kiwi Kiss, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango
Paper:  Kiwi Kiss Textured, Whisper White
Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Dyed grosgrain ribbon

This is adorable and so clever!! I love your tip for dying ribbon to match. The sponge is a great idea!! I've got to remember that next time. These onesies are just super. :)

Oh, you nailed this challenge, Bonnie! I was so excited to open up your blog and see these baby tees! I just ordered this wheel a few weeks ago, have yet to use it, but want to use it in a similar way that you have. I may consider crafting some hangers out of wire since cutting them out were challenging. Cute, cute card!
And, thanks for stopping by my blog!

Bonnie, the little baby tees are just the cutest things. Love this card. And, good job with the ribbon. Yes, I think any card is good for holding money. LOL
