Baby Girl

This is a commission card for one of my work colleagues whose daughter has just had a baby girl.

The background paper is from the Forever Friends "Pink Parfait" set.  The gingham paper for the frames is from my stash and has been finished with faux stitching and pearls in each corner.

The letters are from the Doodlebug Designs baby girl kit and the sentiment has been stamped onto a Magnolia label from the "Heavenly Tag" set which has been coloured with Promarkers.

I found the baby coat in a sale in our local Tesco's and it was attached to the front of a photo album.  You see a true crafter will look anywhere to find inspiration and craft stuff won't they?  :-)

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Dream Valley Challenge - new beginnings - WINNER
Incy Wincy Designs - pastel colours
KB Cute Monday - use pink
Claudia & Co - recipe
Everybody Art Challenge - baby
Flourishes - real or faux stitching
2 Sisters Challenge - oh baby
