DRESS CARD FOR BABY

Hi all!! This will be a quick post but I wanted to share my dress card I made using the template cards at Paper Popsicles. I love these templates...this is the first one I have made and I am hooked!! I made this one for a friend who is having a baby soon - I did not put anything on the front so that if she wants, she can add it to a scrapbook layout! I had such fun making this!! The two designer paper sets I used were Pink Flamingo and Tea Party which I love because of all the fun designs they have. And, since I am using this for the Cuttlebug Challenge this week, I embossed the bottom of the skirt with my new Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder as well as on the sleeves. I love that SU! came out with these really pretty embossing folders (I don't have a cuttlebug so I had to use my sizzix) and I was excited with how well they show up after I added some chalk! I have not used my chalks in awhile so it was nice to break them out again - they really do add a lot to a project!! Now, I have to scoot, so have a wonderful day and I will be back tomorrow with the promised Halloween projects! Toodles!
Card Recipe: (all items SU! unless noted)
Paper - Whisper White card stock, Tea Party and Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper Packs
Inks - SU! chalks
Stamps - none
Accessories - Rose Red narrow grosgrain ribbon, kaiser krafts pearls, Petals-a-Plenty sizzix embossing folder, dress template from PP
