Sweet Baby Things!

Hi there everyone!  I have a new quick card to share with you today using PaperTrey products!
One of my cousins just had her first baby girl in January and I made a crocheted baby blanket for her.  She already has two boys and as any Mom of a girl knows, there is never too much pink!

This is the card I threw together to go with her present.  I used Blush and Spring Moss inks and papers along with several other products.

 The die cut butterfly is from the brand new Beautiful Butterflies Die Set.  I stamped it using a Hero Arts Design Block stamp and added some jute twine and a Moss Button (PTI too).  The butterfly is popped up 3-D on the card.  On the white layer of cardstock, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Quatrefoil Die.  You have to run it back forth to cut through the entire thing, so I decided to use it more as an embossing plate and ran it through once.  The edges of the White and Moss papers were distressed for texture and shabby chic-ness (if that's a word!) and inked in Blush ink.  "Welcome baby" was stamped from the Round & Round Limited Edition set on Blush paper using a punch from SU (I don't think you can still get this set.).  I stamped polka dots from Polka Dots Basics II in Moss on Moss paper and added more jute twine and another Moss button.  I think it turned out so cute, I decided to make another one for my Etsy shop!

Ok, so here is the sweet blanket I made her!  It is so adorable in person!  I must confess, I had many more pics of it, but I ran out of card space on my camera last night at my daughter's lacrosse game and started deleting outtakes and realized I accidentally deleted the good ones too!  Bummer!

I used a free V-stitch pattern for this blanket.  (you have to register with lion brand to get the pattern) I really hope she likes it!  I was so late in finishing and getting it mailed to her!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!
