Baby Girl

Just over a week ago a new little grand-niece joined the family and this is the card I've made to welcome her arrival.  Keira was a few days overdue but arrived safe and well and was home a few days later.  The teddy bear character images on this one are from a Cuddly Buddly download  Teddy Bear's Alphabet Pink.  I used the My Craft Studio graphics programme to resize and print them and then cut them out using square nestabilities dies.  Because the background looked rather white I used Stampin' up Pink Pirouette ink to colour it in, leaving the die in place to give a white border.  The pink gingham backing paper is from the Cuddly Buddly download A Patchwork of Papers - Pink.

This was quite a simple card to put together and apart from using some ribbon, brads, pink safety pins and Quickutz button die cuts it basically involved layering up different papers.  The Martha Stewart punch around the page set, Eyelet Lace, was used to decorate the edges of the gingham paper.

The sentiment was computer generated and sponged around the edges with the Pink Pirouette ink as was the scalloped edged card.  To finish off a few crystal dot peel offs were added for sparkle.  This is probably my last card creation for this year and delighted that it's for a very happy occasion.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge
