Denise said... That's a great project Barb! Just love that Graphic 45 paper.
I needed a baby shower gift card today and the card pictured above is what I came up with! No stamping! Just working with paper, ribbon, flowers, & dies! I used an image from Crafty Secrets Baby Girl Cotton Scraps! There are many usable images on the sheet, making this very economical! Available are a variety of Cotton Scraps found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! My white card base is PaperTreyink white stampers select cardstock, that has been die cut with Spellbinders Labels Eight, #6 then dry embossed with Cuttlebugs Kassies Brocade folder.
The flower at the card top is one from the right hand package pictured above. They are Prima Flowers, Lilliput Roses Marshmallow available at The Stamp Simply Store. I used my dauber and Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress ink to pink the petal edges.
The smaller roses come from the far right package of Prima Flowers pictured above! I love they come in various shades! Again I rubbed tattered rose ink onto the lightest one used.
How about that tinsel edged ribbon? I've been using this ribbon on some of my holiday creations and love it so much, I ordered the pink! It's perfect for a girly card! Around the small oval I folded the ribbon in half, stitched along the fold line, gathered and scor taped it around the back edge allowing the gather to frame the oval.
The Dies are Spellbinders new Beaded Ovals. For this card I used #2, #3, and #4, and also Classic Large Oval #4 to create the pink frame. The Angel sentiment is cut from the Cotton Scraps and the pink 100% jute string is super wonderful to work with! You should see all the colors it comes in! I think that about covers all the supplies used, I hope the Mom to be will enjoy this special card!
Congratulations to Denise, our Stamp Simply Store Blog Hop winner! And thank you to all who visit and leave comments, it is appreciated so very much! Take good care!

This card is absolutely beautiful! I have many cards my MIL kept from my husband's birth in 1951, and (though his were, of course, blue!) this is very reminiscent of the cards at that time. GREAT job!
