Welcome Little One

Hello All!
I hope you're having a wonderful week!
Our international vacation begins a week from tomorrow
and my excitement is definitely building!  LOL

Today's card was inspired by a sketch I spotted over at the CD Sunday Challenge Blog.
Even though I won't be entering it there since I did not follow their 'CD rule',
I still enjoyed the sketch and created a fun baby card
using some of my new Carta Bella design papers & ephemera!

Carta Bella - Paper Pad - 6

My focus sentiment panel comes from a coordinating Ephemera pack
and I took the liberty of matting it with black card stock to make
it stand out a bit more.  I created the notched corners by using a 1"
circle punch.

My flowers are OLD off cuts that were left over from a demo for Heartfelt Creations.
They had been stamped and white embossed so I simply rubbed
over them with Stampin' Up Cameo Coral ink and added
Nuvo  Apple Green Crystal Drops for the centers.

Nuvo Crystal Drops - Gloss Aple Green

Quick, Easy and so much fun!

Have a great day my friends and thanks for stopping by!

As always ...

Gosh, you still have some of those flowers? They look different every time. Love the coral color you used on this, and another great sketch! You're going to make me want to play in my room instead of doing all these chores I've got lined up. I'm so excited for your trip, and I can imagine how you're doing handsprings and running in circles by now!
