Baby Girl

Hello my friend!  I am in serious need of the sun.  I don't know about where you live, but it is gray, gray and MORE gray.  Blah.  So, I was very happy to discover that CR84FN has a very happy, colorful color combination that at least got me out of my blah mood for a bit while I created it! 

I started with Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe Collection and matted my card front with some of the yellow gingham paper, after it was distressed and inked.

I layered a couple of strips of patterned paper that I border punched with Fiskar's Apron Lace punch and a sticker from the collection.  Tied around some twine and added a layered die cut flower that was distressed and sprintzed with Glimmer Mist.  Threaded a big yellow button with read EF and stuck it in the flower center

Lastly, I adhered the word "girl" with some glue and stamped "Baby" to finish it off.

Here is the lovely inspirational photo:

I hope you enjoyed and are having a great day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
