Baby Shower Card

Hooray, it's the weekend and I'm in the mood to start making an impact on my christmas cards this year. I've decided I'm bulk making one design like I did last's much easier and definitely less stressful.

I'm sharing a baby shower card with you today that one of my work colleagues asked me to make. I normally go for pastels/ginghams/spots but thought I'd try a bolder design. For once I'm quite pleased with the outcome and that doesn;t happen very often...I normally hate my cards lol!

I'm entering my card into the following challenge

I think we are always our biggest critics and often feel the same about my cards. The ones i dislike the most are often others favourites. I love this card and agree the colours are perfect. Hugs, Amanda x

This caught my eye earlier and it's taken all day to get back! Fab papers and fab card. You need a slap on the backs of your knees for hating all your gorgeous cards. Do I need to come over there? X

This is so delightful. Love the pretty papers, the gorgeous image and the way you've personalised it.
Love this card size/style too.
I've been looking for some of these and then realised that you have to make them yourself. Would you share with me what size you make yours?
