Shery's Finally Popped Hop!

We at STAMPlorations LOVE surprises and we also LOVE a good celebration. And boy (or in this case girl) is there something to celebrate around here!!

Today, our fearless leader, Shery, became a brand new mommy!! She delivered a healthy, happy, precious baby girl! 

As anyone who has ever come into contact with Shery knows, her kindness, generosity, and amazing spirit are unparalleled and we wanted to do something extra special to celebrate her big news.




So we're having a surprise hop-a-long that Shery will see when she gets out of the hospital and we are hoping you'll celebrate with us. 

Here is my card:


I used a background that my friend, Cat Craig, mailed to me. I love the textural, wrinkliness of it (thanks, Cat)! I sponges some Distress Inks over the background (Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Vintage Photo) and then added a proliferation of pink goodness - flowers, buttons, metal, and a feminine bow. 

I don't know many baby cards, and I rarely think in pastels so I'm pretty happy with how this came out!

I'm going to link this up to the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Monochromatic
Crafty Gals Corner - Lots of Layers
Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes
Shopping or Stash - Splish Splash - use a wet medium (distress spray stains)
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes

Shery - if you see this post, know that I'm SO beyond excited for your little STAMPfamily and we are all thinking of you and wishing you the best!

If anyone else would like to go play along and maybe send Shery a congrats card, you can link up at the STAMPlorations blog

  29. Really lovely baby girl card! I always love out-of-the-box cards, especially baby cards, and this fits the bill so nicely. That bow with its sweet little brad is delightful, as is that background paper which you've colored so beautifully, btw. The flowers, leaves and the little pink buttons add just the right amount of 'baby girl' to it. Darling card, and I'm sure mommy and daddy will adore it! Just so sweet. Bev
