Sugared Baby Shower


Hi friends! The family friend for whom I made the barnyard baby shower invitations is having her big hoopla this Saturday. My mom and I are giving her a bassinet, so when I saw that image on my New Arrival Cricut cartridge, I knew I had to use it :) All of the papers and "Girl" sticker are from Basic Grey's Sugared line. I added a bit of sheer pink ribbon, a Prima flower, and a gold button, which I hand-stitched to the flower. I also couldn't resist adding a big of Doodlebug's Sugar Coating to the ribbon on the bassinet- yum! :) The scallops aren't perfect, which irritates me, but I traced one of my ShapeCutters templates and hand-cut it with scissors. I would have just cut it using my ShapeCutter, but the corners wouldn't have lined up b/c the template is 8 1/2 x 11. Oh, well. :)

The sketch is caardvarks, sponsored by ShortCuts!:
I hope you enjoy my little card, thanks for checking in!

I haven't had time to come around for awhile and I really like what you are doing. Your cards are lovely.

I didn't realize you have a Cricut. I'm a DT at the Chirper Challenge and would love to have you join in some time. http://chirperchallenge.blogspot.com/

What do you mean the scallops aren't perfect?? It looks perfect to me... oh wait, is that your hand cut version? If so that is amazing! That will be so cute to go with the bassinet. She'll love it.
