Baby Girl Congrats

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a card I made for the most recent Card Patterns Sketch Challenge! Here's the sketch:


And here's my creation:


My cousin recently had a baby girl, so I made this card for her!!! I wanted it to be as sweet as the photos I've seen of her little peanut, and I thought using this ADORABLE elephant image from DeNami Design would do just the trick!

I made the buttons at the top using a combination of a Martha Stewart button punch, and PTI's Buttoned Up #1 dies that I won from my friend Erin's blog AGES ago!!! (Thanks, Erin!)

Thanks for stopping by!
