I wanted to do a card at least to show her how my family all felt. We do not know the sex of the baby, so neutral was the go. I had seen this card and it gave me the basis for mine. I apologise in advance for the dodgy pics...this card was done very much on the fly and the pics were taken in secret in my niece's room before it was given!!
I used this DP once before here...on my daughter's birthday card last year. It was a swap that I acquired from Steph at craft Camp last year. Given that it was all colours, I thought the best for a neutral card!! The rattle is a little easier to see IRL, but you get the idea anyhow. I gathered some scrap lace for the band of the rattle and double punched the handle with a couple of circle punches.
The final finishing touches were yellow grosgrain ribbon for the handle and bow as well as the sentiment with tiny pale green bling.
I was quite amazed how bits from here and there came together for such a sweet card. I also got to bust out my new Martha Stewart Punch....Love it!!
Thanks for stopping by.
