Hello again! First things first... Remember yesterday how I mentioned the beautiful weather in Wisconsin? Let me take that back! We have heat advisories out for the next two days and then back into the 50/60's on Thursday. Apparently I spoke too soon. :) Okay, enough about the crazy weather...
Today I decided that I need to take a few minutes and make a baby card for one of my BFF's who just had a sweet little baby girl. This was a bit of a challenge because my friend does not love pastels and even more specifically, pastel pink. I kept it to a minimum by using brightly colored patterned paper with a very little sprinkle of pinks. :) What do you think?
Oh and the super sweet PK-222 Happy-Go-Lucky Elephant... one of my faves!
That bow on the card isn't just an ordinary bow. It is fully equipped with an alligator clip on the back and ready to be tucked into some of that new-baby-smelling hair. I make hairbows... it's kind of my 'thing'. So I have been adding a small one to baby girl cards that I have made lately. Every little girl needs a pretty hair bow! :) Even if you can't make your own hair bows, this would be a super easy gift to whip up for a new baby girl! Buy a few bows to add to the card and VOILA! But if you don't want to add bows... it's still a fun card with a super cute elephant!
Supplies I used:
PK-222 Happy-Go-Lucky Elephant
Little Girl (all patterned paper and cardstock sticker 'cutie pie') by Echo Park Paper
