Don't you just love baby cards?
My friend, Erin, at work just had a relative who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Ava and she asked me to make a card for her. I was flattered that she would even want one of my cards to give to someone...and of course, I said yes!
However, when I asked Erin what kind of card she wanted...cutesy, simple, blah blah blah...she replied back "my only requirement is that it has minimal pink" WHAAA? it's a baby girl card, lol, it's supposed to be swarmed with pink.
So, this is my interpretation. And I love it. And Jim even said it was "beautiful" -- he's told me my cards were nice before but never called them beautiful, so I knew he really liked it!!
I really, really like this card, actually. It is very simplistic, yet elegant and I think it really delivers the message! Bonus: I got to use my new Signature Sentiments from the fabulous Dawn McVey for Papertrey :) (I just got my package today and was like a little kid in a candy store!!)
Well, hopefully my friend Erin...and the new parents will enjoy the card as much as I do :)
