Cute as a Button!!

This week one of the school Mums gave birth to a little baby girl called Amelia Kate.  We were so happy for them especially because they already had three sons!!!  Of course they are now being showered with PINK!!!  :)  I decided to use this weeks CPS Sketch Challenge which is being sponsored by JustRite Stampers (with a prize to win) to create a special card!!!

I started with a base of pink bazzill layered with white, lighter pink bazzill and some Nana's Nursery (Girl) DCWV paper.  Through the middle is a piece of pink bazzill punched on both sides with the Martha Stewart Floral Lace Border Punch and layered with lighter pink embossed with the Love Language EF.  The two rings are made using the borders from JustRite's Stitched with Love set and cut out with two of the Large Circle Nestabilities.  The feature panel is created using the same Stitched with Love set for the middle and the custom sentiment made using two 25pt Times New Roman Fonts.  I added a little colour with markers and blender pen and cut it out with Small Circle Nestabilities, matting it with pink cut with the Blossom Nestabilities and popped up the middle panel on foam tape.  To finish I added some tiny Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Stitched with Love, Times New Roman Font (x2) (JustRite)
Paper - Pink Bazzill (2 shades), White, DCWV Nana's Nursery Girl DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Pretty in Pink
Accessories - Large and Small Circle Nestabilities, Blossom Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Floral Lace Border Punch, Love Language EF, Markers, Blender Pen, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.
