pregnancy card

Hi friends! The counselor I work for is a couple months pregnant and we were having a celebratory lunch (same time as Social Worker Week!) so I made this card for her.

The white/black patterned paper is K&Co and the aqua cardstock is DCWV. (The black is from a notebook I bought at the dollar store.) The red paper frill is by Doodlebug, which happened its way onto the card because I had it lying around on my desk and I decided it would work well here AND it would be great to get if off my desk. Yay- I love using things up like that! :D The "so happy for you" sentiment is by Hero Arts and the image is off of the New Arrival Cricut cartridge. I don't use my Cricut as often as I should because I don't have a set place to plug it in, but it came in SUPER handy for this card ;) I chose to leave the image as a silhouette because I think it would have taken something away from the card to give her an outfit and a skin tone, and then it would look like I was trying to recreate Lisa in paper form, and I didn't want to do that. Plus, I think it looks more "mod" to leave the image as a silhouette. Anyway, enough rambling, I hope you like this card as much as I do! :) Thanks for peeking in!

Yes! I love the color, paper and embie : ) I have this cartridge and I never thought to use the black. You are right in your assessment! I think it looks very "hip" : ) Great job!
