Welcome, Little One

I have a lunch tomorrow with two friends, to celebrate the arrival of a little one. So you know I had to go out and find the most impractical, beyond cute, how could something so little cost so much dress I could find! Oh yeah, and I need a card to go with it! Here is the card to go with:



The card base is Stampin' Up!, Chocolate Chip.  The pink layer is cardstock I had on hand.  The cream layer is Neenah Classic Crest, Classic Cream.  The DP is Sandylion Daisy Stripes.  I used an EK Success edger punch for the decorative edges.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Circa 2003.  I used Colorbox ink in Chestnut and clear embossing powder.

I had the ribbon, eyelets, flowers and buttons on hand.  The flowers needed a little grunge up, so I antiqued them with a sponge and Stampin' Up! Creamy Caramel ink.

Thanks, for taking a peek!
