Baby Shower

Today was my step-daughter Julia's baby shower.  She, her hubby and 19 month old son are expecting a girl in December!  It's PINK time!  After spending a great evening with my buddy Jen at Stephanie Barnard's card class Thursday night, I felt ready to take on one of her Flip-It cards all by myself.  Easier said than done.  The cutting part, of course is easy.  It's the selecting of papers for all the bits and pieces that caused me to stumble a time or two.  But when you are working with a specific 6x6 pad of adorable PINKish papers, how can you go wrong?  It took a lot of thinking and a bit of discovery if you are using a patterned paper that has a TOP and a BOTTOM.  Beware of that.

So all paper is from Doodlebug Design's 6x6 Double Sided (that really helps) "hello spring".  The colors were so girly I couldn't resist.  With the exception of the tiny flowers which are punches, the entire card including the owl stamp are Stepanie Barnard's designs.  Her Flip It die is the Circle Flip-Its #2.

Being an engineer, I knew Julia would get a kick out of this card on top of the PINK…and she did:)

Thanks for looking!

    1. Well that's what a baby girl on the way does to me:)

  2. This card is too darned cute. How did I miss this one? I need to be more vigilant about blog posts. I just love the patterns and colors on this one, not to mention the OWL. I'm sure Julia loved it.
