Love this card

I love making this card - first made it 2 years ago when my great nephew Ben was born and since then have been inundated with orders and folk tell me that they are actually framing the card to put in baby's bedroom - how wonderful.
It can be a nightmare if the baby has a name longer than 6 letters.
Made with Pink Petticoat "Little Fleurs" Collection - stripes and polka dots and the colour is Bluebell - it is such a beautiful blue and so soft. It is difficult sometimes to find a proper baby blue but this one is just perfect. Cut three white circles and the hearts with the Cricut. Letters cut from Pink Petticoat Monograms and covered with the papers and then inked all the pieces with a Lt Brown inkpad to give them some definition. The photo doesn't actually do it justice.
Trying to be motivated today in between watching some of my favourite designers on QVC's Craft Day. Have just had a retail therapy fix on the Heidi Grace show....oh dear!!!! will have to speak nicely to Mr Bank Manager.
