I had a bridal shower to go to this past Saturday, and of course I waited 'til the last minute to make a card. I figured on just using one from "my stash", but then I couldn't stand not having one that matched the brown and green swirled gift bag. So Saturday morning saw me throwing this together quickly before heading out the door. Fortunately it came together pretty easily.
I printed the sentiment from my computer, being sure to leave enough room to stamp the cake (Lizzie Anne's Dream Big) above, which I did using Memento rich cocoa ink, and colored with a bit of green and gray Copics. I layered it on celery, then chocolate chip with a punched border. The background, I ran the edges along my brown ink pad before embossing with the birds and swirls cuttlebug folder. The greens of the flower, cake and butterflies really do match much better in real life, I promise. I wished I had snapped a pic of the inside too. It looks so pretty with matching wedding rings in green overlapping the matching sentiment. I love having something to stamp on the inside of my cards. That way I don't have to come up with something to say myself. I can just sign my name.
I've had a few questions about how the baby is doing, so if you're interested...Things are going quite well. I can't complain other than the typical heartburn and back pain type things. And, well, I guess that's just par for the course. There's lots of movement going on in there which is exciting and reassuring. The ultrasound technician couldn't be sure if it's a girl or a boy, but she said "probably" a girl. I go back for another in a couple of weeks or so, so maybe we'll get a better view. I haven't bought any of my nursery furniture or decor yet, but I have it all picked out. We just went to look at paint this morning before Josh had to head out to work. I'll be sure to share a photo in a couple of months when it's all put together. Thanks for asking!
