A friend of mine recently announced that she's pregnant with her first baby! So of course, I couldn't wait to make her a congratulatory card.
The sentiment frame comes from the Pretty Peonies stamp set and the sentiment is from Signature Greetings II set. I stamped the frame with Berry Sorbet ink and then I added clear embossing powder over both frame and sentiment to make it pop and shine.
The card base is Hawaiian Shores and topped with that great background die. I felt like the card still needed a little something, so I filled in some of the die cut background pieces with Mellon Berry cardstock, which I think added some nice contrast to the sentiment panel. I also popped up the butterfly and sentiment panel with pop dots so they wouldn't be swallowed up in the background. There is so much dimension to this card!
My card was inspired be this card from Lorraine's Loft. That's all for tonight. Thanks for visiting! And have a safe and happy Memorial Day! :)
