So Worth the Wait

It was another fresh February day in PG yesterday! Took Keta for a walk down the forest service road near our neighbourhood - she loves to run freely! Was good for her to get some exercise and get rid of some energy. I also enjoyed getting some fresh air!

Today's card is created using a new sketch from Retro Sketches and a theme challenge from the Paper Players:
This sketch was a bit challenging at first glance, but pairing it with a theme like the one from Paper Players inspired me! Baby cards are always fun to make and I love adding buttons and bows to my cards! This is what I came up with:
I created a square 5"x5" card. I used designer paper from the Twitterpated DSP collection for the background. A piggy is stamped in Rose Red and popped up on a circle/scallop circle. Small Blushing Bride buttons are added as embellishments and I tied a small bow with Bakers twine for the piggy's ear. The sentiment "so worth the wait" completes the card. Doesn't it make an adorable card for welcoming a new baby girl? 


I created a matching envelope using the Twitterpated DSP.
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Button Buddies, Word Play
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red
Tools: Circle nestabilities, Scallop Circle nestabilities
Accessories: Twitterpated buttons (Blushing Bride), Early Espresso striped baker's twine
Thanks for stopping by!
