Vintage Baby...

A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. -Eda J. Le Shan
Today is World Card Making Day! I have made 2 cards so far and plan on another few before the day is over! :) It was also my dear friend, Crystal's Baby Shower today! We had a wonderful time chatting eating wonderful food and decorating little onsies with fabric paint! :) This is the card I made for Crystal, the gift is not done, she doesn't know what she is having, so we have to wait...I am making her a set of Baby Name Blocks. I broke out my Webster's Pages Petite Papers because I Love the vintage feel of the Lullaby Lane! I used one of the 6x6 sheets and added silk ribbon, Flowers, Pearls and a button. Then I finished it off with Glitter and Faux Sewing...
