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!
