Baby Girl

Hi there! My cousin is expecting her first baby (a girl) in early November. My mom, my SIL and I pitched in for her shower gift---the bedding for the baby's crib, which I then used as inspiration for the card that will accompany the gift.

Here's a photo of the bedding:

Photo from Babies R Us website.

And here's my creation:

I embossed the Large Daisy Blossom on vellum to try to capture the look of the embroidered flowers on the sheer overlay. I also scored vertical lines in the bottom panel (although it doesn't show up in the photo at all) to represent the crinkly layer under the embroidered overlay. I think the chocolate brown, baby pink, and white color combo is really sweet for a baby girl. And the Leafy Vine image on the top panel is a pretty close match to the leaves on the bed sheets.

I hope you like my creation for today!

Thanks for stopping by!
