“Two by Two” Baby Girl Card

One of my dear friends just had a baby girl!  After THREE boys, she finally received the “sugar and spice” in her house!  This will be one special little girl — loved and protected by many — and spoiled rotten!  I couldn’t wait to sit down last week and make her a sweet little girl card.  The ingredients had to include lace, pearls, buttons, and bows — and the colors had to be pink and gray to go with the nursery.  I used the single image stamp TWO BY TWO and colored all of the animals in pinks and gray with a Blender Pen.  I used Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette for the coloring, along with Basic Gray.

I found flowery little pink buttons and popped a pearl into the center……..so sweet and dainty!  I ruffled the lace ribbon along the bottom edge, and paper pierced the edges of the die cut shape.  The gray 1″ circles framed it out nicely, and added some interest.  I lightly sponged the edges with Basic Gray, also.

You might notice a few holes in the gray ribbon — I decided to pull the white stitching out and just use the gray part for this card.  I didn’t like the bright white next to the Vanilla Lace.  The DSP is from the Floral District collection and I matted it with Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo.
