Today's card is for one of the gals in the neighborhood who just had her first baby girl! Baby cards are some of my most favorite cards to make! I bought some fabric to make her a quilt and now I have all of the squares cut, but it isn't even sewn yet. I bought it in the middle of Christmas festivities, so I knew that it would sit untouched for a couple of weeks. Anyway, the fabric is pink and brown, polka dots and damask! Of course, the card has to match, so I used some My Mind's Eye pattern paper. The damask on the back panel is flocked, which I absolutely love. The other two patterns are not, but are from the same line.
I have been feeling like I use "Baby Button Bits" from PTI for every baby card, so I switched things up and used "Buggies and Booties" from SU!. I thought it worked nicely with the patterns also. I don't know if she even likes vintage, but that is what she is getting! LOL! The sentiment is from "Baby Button Bits", however. The focal image is one of my favorite images and I am sure it really should stay white, but I didn't want to make it a christening/blessing card, so I decided to add some hints of pink. After I was done coloring it, I thought the focal image seemed a little too stark and plain, so I stamped the sentiment which is included in the set which says, "Babies are bits of stardust blown from the hand of God" very lightly with "Antique Linen" distress ink by Ranger. It gave it the perfect touch.
