Baby Shower

Morning me lovelies...looks like we are set for some warm weather over the next few days and quite timely too as I have booked next week off work. I can't wait for the break especially as I've not had a full week off work since Christmas 2011!

I needed to make a baby shower card recently and immediately chose to use this fab image from the Digi Stamp Boutique. I've really not been in the mood for colouring recently (one of my pet hates) so took the opportunity to do some paper piecing. The mum-to-be doesn't know the sex of the baby so I went with lilac and lemon as neutral colours.

Digital Image: Digi Stamp Boutique (Alexa - Just Chill, I'm Having a Baby))
Design Papers: Carol Clarke
Colouring Medium: Promarkers
Card Stock: SU! Lavender Lace
Embellishments: Ribbons, Gems & Button from my Craft Stash!
Sentiment: Created on the Computer
