The Sweetest Gift

A friend of mine from high school is having a baby girl in the next few weeks.  I wanted to create her a special card, when I saw this weeks sketch at Mojo Monday, I knew it was perfect for a baby's card.  I did have to stretch the sketch out, my card is 3 1/2 x 8 inches. 

This week at The Play Date Cafe, the color challenge is White, Flamingo Pink, and Bright Orange.  I just love that color combo, it's one that I don't use, but wanted to play with.  This was my time.  I had the perfect papers from Little Yellow Bicycle that I combined with some white cardstock and orange Bazzil Bling cardstock.

The Ribbon Carousel's challenge this week is "Color-a-licious".  I was originally going to make paper rosette's for behind the letters, but started thinking about it and thought that some bright pink lace would be perfect for a baby girl's card.  So I cut 6" pieces of the lace and ran a basting stitch along the bottom and gathered and tied the ends to create lace rosette's.
