*oh baby*

Here's a baby card I made for a friend who's expecting in February. I ran across some of the sweetest little baby outfits while shopping at Kohls the other day, and you can't give someone a gift without a card, right? I've been anxious to try making my own paper blossoms, and they are perfectly sweet for a baby girl card. I wanted mine to look a bit on the shabby side, so I sanded the edges, crumpled them up, and then I gave the whole card several spritzes of wheatfield glimmer mist. I love that stuff! It adds such an aged look with just a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Love this! That flower is fabulous, stem and all. I need to do some serious crumpling and spritzing...something I don't do a lot of.
