RS #66



It seems that it has been so long since I had any need to make any baby cards, but this spring I am making so many.  My girlfriend came by the other day with girl number 3, only a week old. Nothing like the swishy little face and the sweet smell of a little baby but I am past that and could just be happy for her.  I tied her card in with this week's RetroSketch!  I had some fun using the new Avery Elle Chevron dies and some sweet Pink Lemonade Lawn Fawn paper.







Cardstock:  Kraft, White, Sweet Blush (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Pink Lemonade (Lan Fawn)
Stamps: Polka Dot Parade #4, Fillable Frame #5 (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Smokey Shadow, Sweet Blush (Papertrey Ink)
Dies: Fillable Frames #5, Wonderful Words Baby (Papertrey Ink) Cheron Bits Die (Avery Elle)
other: foam tape, corner chomper
