Bohemian Baby Card

Two different challenge blogs totally inspired me to create this "welcome baby" card. Over at Heart 2 Heart, the "Oh Baby" challenge is to create something for baby. At 365 Cards, today's (Day 21) challenge is the "A, B, Cs of Crafting" challenge: A is for alphabet, B is for blue (which I didn't use but could have), and C is for circle. You only had to use one of the three, but I (obviously) used two.

I began with a Blush card base, and I stamped "welcome" from the Around the Block stamp set in the top left corner. On a 2"x5.5" strip of White Daisy cardstock, I stamped "baby" in Hollyhock using the Bohemian Alphabet stamp set. The pleats use paper from the Sophia paper pack. As I assembled the card, I thought it needed a little something, so I "faux stitched" the Hollyhock stripes on the sentiment piece. (I drew a freehand line with the marker then went back and pierced it at regular intervals to mimic stitching.)

Finally, I created the flower using two flowers from the Spring Blossoms Just Blooms. The pleated scalloped flower was made with another pattern of the Sophia paper pack. (Scroll down to find a tutorial if you're interested.) A few pearls on the letters and a pearl in the center of the flower finished off the card. I think it turned out really pretty in pink! Hope you like it too.

The folded scalloped flower looks super with the two Just Blooms ones! And I love that alphabet. I don't NEED another alphabet but I think I want that one...
Hugs!
