....Oooooooooo! Baby Love...

Sorry, it's Friday and I can't help but burst into song, especially one as good as this! I know I'm nuts but I'm sure I'm in good company :P

My mum asked if I could make a personalised new baby card for her neighbour's son, as I made one for their 1st daughter and they loved it...kept talking about it for weeks apparently, and she wanted to do the same for their 2nd daughter, who was born at the end of August. It's been so busy since she asked, today has been the first chance I've's what I made:
I know I've used this image before, but I do love it, I couldn't resist giving it another outing! He's called Baby Roger, and is the handiwork of Helen Laurence. I've given 'him' a pink nappy and am naming 'her' Rosie for this card!!!! She is of course coloured using Promarkers and cut out with a nestie.

My papers are digis, the pink one says 'Baby Girl' all over in tiny print, the yellow has pink dots. I've matted/layered onto pink and yellow card, and inked the edges in pink. I cut the corners with a Marianne corner punch to soften them.
I have added a few embellishments...a ribbon, some flat-backed pearls, satin ribbon roses, a gingham padded heart, and one of my homemade posh pins (I am loving these atm!)

I used the computer to make the sentiments using the font 'Pooh.' I used a corner punch to round off the corners.
I wanted to make it special, and so I also decorated the inside to match.

I made the card with the following challenges in mind:
Thanks for dropping's to a great weekend :)
