For the Sophisticated Mother to Be

I needed a baby card for some friends of ours. Really it's the father who is friends with my husband. I don't know the mother real well, but she definately strikes me as simple and sophisticated. So, that's what I had in mind when making this card.

Stamps: Sweet Love (Papertrey Ink); Family Phrases (Verve Visual)
Ink: Certainly Celery (Stampin' Up!); Versamark
Paper: Certainly Celery (SU!); white (PTI)
Accessories: detail white embossing powder (SU!); coluzzle; Gemstones (Hero Arts); dimensionals

Ooh, I love this one, especially how you did the sentiment oval and just the tiniest rhinestone accents. Very nice indeed. I've got a similar baby-card need - too bad I don't have this set!
