Welcome Baby Girl


A sweet friend of mine recently became a first-time grandmother, and I was feeling like a little girl was on the way, but oops! It was a boy! LOL I made this card in anticipation of that new bundle of joy and had to scramble to make a boy card instead! LOL So much for my intuition huh?
I used white and Blushing Bride pink, embossing the background with a SU! Happy Hearts ef, then adding a double panel of the PTI Notched Hearts Banner dies, adding a snippet of ribbon and lots of pink stickles inside the die-cut heart negatives. The baby feet were done with a Quickutz die and placed on a MFT stitched circle die cut, then matted with a SB scalloped circle die cut. Of course I added nail polish to the toes, because it's a girl, right? (or so I thought!)
The sentiment panel was done with a MFT stitched circle die and another SB scalloped circle die, and I added the MFP sentiment stamped in soft grey ink.
I'm sure there will be a little baby girl coming into the world one day soon when I can use this card - hopefully :)

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground weeks #271 and 272.

Thanks for dropping by and I wish you a wonderful day.

Carol

That will teach you to try and think ahead. It does not work for me either. This, however, is such a sweet card! Those tiny feet are just precious with their toe polish!

Well I bet if the Grandmother saw this card she would have been hoping for a girl but I know that the boy card was just as stunning. I do love everything about this card. Have a nice day and stay warm.
