Babies, Oh Joy!

Exciting year as we're welcoming a few babies into the family. This card is for my beautiful niece who already lights up the room with activity. She's surrounded by 8 older cousins between the ages of 3 and 10 who get into a noisy line waiting their turn to hold her as the mommies hold their breath - LOL.

So hard to make the perfect baby card and after the third try, this is the best I came up with. I did a combination of things and don't remember if inspiration came to me or if I've seen this layout somewhere else.

For the background, I used the new Spellbinder Butterfly Impressionabilities I got from Skribbles and Scraps. I really like the subtle embossed pattern but will fiddle with my Cuttlebug a bit more next time by adding a piece of cardstock or thin chipboard for a crisper impression. Also loving these beautiful Prima flowers I got from Phebe at the Town Scrapper.

Have a great day stamping.
