Paper Pieced New Baby Card

One of my good friends at work is expecting her first baby girl this week. I was so excited that the little one will be here soon that I already made the card. It is possible that the baby will make her debut a little early right? My daughter was exactly one week early. Of course my own mother called my baby's birth date months ahead of time! The only problem with my own daughter arriving a week early was that it interfered with me taking my last exam to finish my law degree. Just as my own mother predicted, my little girl came the exact day of my Family Law final (fitting right?). I ended up taking the exam when I came out of the hospital and graduated from law school without any trouble =) It is so much easier to take a law school final after you have given child birth. Anything is easy compared to that!



Back to the card...I paper pieced Baby Bella Pea with designer paper from a DCVW pack. I also used nesties, bazzill cardstock, tuxedo black memento ink, Tim Holtz Distress ink in Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint, Stampin Up Punches & Sentiments, and EK Success corner punch. Of course I had to decorate the inside of the card too! I hope you enjoyed my card.



Do not forget to participate in the Whiff of Joy Challenge at my store blog. It is such a fun challenge and you get a chance to win an awesome stamp that is perfect for Valentine's Day. Be sure to check it out =)

Hugs,
