Small Wonder


I REALLY struggled with this little baby card. After having to make so many baby and children's card the last few weeks, I swore I would not make another one for at least a month. BUT the free digi from Designed2Delight for the progressive challenge came up and this was the image. After much moaning and groaning, I created yet another baby card. I tried to come up with maybe a Valentine's Day card, but it just wasn't happening........So, you get to see a baby card instead! And I'll already have at least one card made when I get another order for more children and baby cards!

This is close to a CASE that I saw on SCS for another image but I just can't remember who had the layout, etc. I used Pretty in Pink, White, and some background paper from Paper Studio. The sentiment is from Whimsical Words (SU). I added little pearls to the bow on the bear (I colored and then cut this out from a different image) and around the scalloped oval punch. The pearls are just the best!!! They are SO very tiny but fit perfect. I just recently got them from SU. There are different sizes but this little ones were just what I needed.

Thanks for stopping by...............

Lynn, perfect! It's a beautiful baby card and I love the fact that it could be changed up and made into a blue card. I agree about the pearls.. I think they are perfect. I love the very small ones and they are hard for me to find in other places.
hope you had a fabulous weekend

Love this little teddy bear, it fits perfectly on this little baby girl card. Great job, especially you are now the expert in making baby cards :)

Very sweet. I especially like the patterned paper you used behind the bear. All the details (scalloped border, pearls, satin ribbon) really lend to the overall design.
