Shabby Chic Adoption Card


Happy Tuesday y'all...I'm a little late with this post so please forgive me! I'm here to share a sweet little card that is pulling double duty...for the Your Memories Here DT & Pile It On! DT. This precious pink card is for a friend's shower this coming weekend. Her & her husband are adopting a baby girl next month; not only will they get to bring her home from the hospital, but they are supposed to participate in her birth as well! How cool is that?! I am soooo happy for them & super excited to make my first diaper cake for the shower on Saturday. I'll be back with photos of that later in the week so wish me luck...lol!


Supplies:
Cardstock - Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper - Prima packaging, Imaginisce
Solid Pink - Misted w/Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Bling/Pearls/Flowers/Lace - Prima
Carriage Stamp - Imaginisce
Sentiment - Studio G
Baby Hands/Feet - StampCraft
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress (walnut stain) & StazOn


My favorite thing about this card is probably the Prima packaging I was able to upcycle & use as my background...also, I love that I was able to make a sheet of paper match using my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Vintage Pink. I am so addicted to all things Prima & Tattered Angels!! If you are also an addict like me, hop on over to the Your Memories Here Store for some amazing deals on the products. Not to mention that there are new shipments of Prima/Marion Smith coming in & you can pre-order RIGHT NOW! I would also love it if you make sure to visit Pile It On! & participate in our current challenge, Anything Goes. You'll also find some fab inspiration while you are there! I'll be back later this week with some AWESOME ribbon organization tips &, of course, that diaper cake...if it's successful! Happy Craftin'!

Thanks so much for stopping by Two Girls Being Crafty and adding us to your blogroll! ; ) I am digging your site--this card is my fav. It totally would have gone in my daughter's shabby nursery... I'm also going to pass your site along to my MIL--she's a hardcore card maker and would love your designs.
