New Baby Girl Card

Was asked by a great friend to make a card for her new baby niece - Leifa.  So I used this wonderful digi by Jane which is available here.  I just ADORE it and have used it on many cards.  I haven't previously coloured "Gerry the Giraffe" pink though... don't know if he is too happy! LOL!!

I matted and layered on Bazzill dotted swiss cardstock and textured pink cardstock by Papermania.  Used my new Spellbinders Curved Rectangle nesties to cut and emboss.  Added a little flower in various shades of pink as an embellishment (used one of these on a card recently and a lot of people asked me who made them - they are in a packet by Craftime and were on sale in Woodies) which I removed after taking this photo and added a pale pink button by Basic Grey instead with some crochet thread tied in a bow... sorry, didn't take a second photo before I delivered the card to my friend.  Opps!

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed my digi week.  I love digis and how you can resize, reprint, add computer generated sentiments, paper piece.... and of course colour!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
