Thanks so much to the gals over at Card Patterns for hosting a weekly challenge! I am in heaven with these challenges! Pop on over to see what the participants are doing with this weeks challenge Card Patterns!

Here is the sketch challenge:


And here is my effort to create with it!

She's Here!!! Baby Girl Birth Announcement

She's Here!!! Baby Girl Birth Announcement

My Recipe:

1.Ā  White 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card

2. Matted with Pink Gingham from Martha Stewarts Pretty in Pink Collection

3. Layered with a pink sponged paper with hearts on it from Craft Warehouse.

4. I used one of my Fiskar punches to create a lacey edge on some pink cardstock.

5. Oh my….I used some of that beautiful lace that my friend Darla shared with me. It’s got pearls running right down the center and I am going to cry when I run our of it! šŸ˜¦

6. 3 pink ribbon bows

7. I used 3 sizes of nesties to create the *centerpiece* or focal point for this card. Isn’t she cute??!!

8. She’s Here! Tag I created on my computer and then just layered it with different card stock.

9. Finished off with 4 white glitter brads in the corners!

Ah……it’s time to go do some cooking! A girl shouldn’t be allowed to have this much fun in one day! >wink<
