In the Pink Hello Baby Card

There is just something about pink that oozes sweetness and there is nothing sweeter than a baby girl.   I finally finished the little quilt and needed a card to send along with it.  I don't have any dedicated baby stamp sets but I think the butterfly works!  I'm posting a picture of the little quilt at the end of this post as well.

I just love the new In Color, Powder Pink.  I used the card stock as a layer, the marker to create the "faux ribbon" stripe,  and the ink pad for some splatters behind the butterfly,  The butterfly is from the Bold Butterfly Framelits and was cut from Powder Pink Card Stock.

I don't have (yet) the 3/8" Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon or I would have used it.  Instead I just used the marker to draw the "ribbon".  I used a Blender Pen and a little Flirty Flamingo ribbon along the edges for some dimension.  And over that I used the Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.  I also used the Wink of Stella all over the butterfly for even more shimmer.

While the card base is Whisper White Thick, my stamping layer is Shimmery White.  I love the slight contrast against the white as much as the shimmer.

I used the little splatter stamp from Timeless Textures, stamping in Powder Pink.  The Hello Baby is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and I stamped it in Basic Gray which isn't quite as harsh as Basic Black.  I love those little greetings.

To finish off the card I added some Glitter Enamel Dots and some Silver Metallic Thread.  Oh my word those little dots are gorgeous!  Take a look at them:

Here is the little quilt I made.  The back is Minkee and it is sooooo soft!
