Pink Inside and Out Baby

I broke one of my own cardinal rules of baby card making here- the nurses have taught me that (at least for them!) just adding 'sweet baby' to the front of a card does not make it a baby card. Color is of particular importance to them, so I think I am ok here- a nice soft baby pink should make it feel like a baby card even though there is nothing other than the sentiment that makes it a welcome baby card.

This is so much prettier IRL then it looks here. The Memory Box paper is a soft pink, and the silk ribbon is so so so pretty! Those little paper roses are from the dollar bins at Michael's- except the dollar bins are now $1.50, lol!! The green layer is an old Anna Griffin print, and the base card is Papertrey's Sweet Blush.

The label is a Cuttlebug embossing and die cut at once set; this is my first use although I have had if for a few months. It's hard to cut just one at a time; there are several in the folder. The edges did not come out perfectly smooth, but a teensy bit of sanding took care of that- for a very pretty result!

It's a large label, which is why I bought the set- to accommodate some of the bigger sentiments from the PTI Inside and Out set. This way, I can layer them on the fronts of cards.

I'm also playing around today with a new photo editing program. Our PC has done the 'Critical Error! screen, and none of the programs are accessible. That leaves me with the laptop until the back to college sales come out. In addition, I took the photos outside- lol, when you live in the woods this is not such an easy task!
