Phoebe's Card

Our next door neighbours have just had their first baby...a girl...Phoebe Grace. She's gorgeous, of course...aren't all babies lol!!  I love babies and I love making baby things...whether it's papercraft or sewing, so I couldn't resist making a pressie for the new arrival :)

Here's the card I made:

And the inside:

I am really happy with how this turned out...not often I'm totally happy with my projects so this is a nice change for me!  I've used digi papers from Scraporchard for the DP and kept the design fairly simple.  I've been wanting to use this gorgeous baby digi for some time and have just been waiting for someone to produce a baby that I could make it for lol!  My babies always slept on their tummies, so this brings back lovely memories for me :)  The inside panel has been computer generated and printed onto DP from the same collection.  It's a bit hard to see in the photo but the circle mat and hanging tag have a glitter's very pretty IRL :)

Thanks for looking....have a wonderful day :)

Such a sweet baby card Lynne. The glittery mat is gorgeous under your pretty baby image & I just love the "cute as a bug!" tag. :)

The towel is adorable too - hope your poor sewing machine didn't fall off it's table in shock!!! Hugs
