Welcome Baby!

Greetings BnW friends,
I can't believe the weekend is over, and here we are, another Monday!  We just posted a new challenge last week over at the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog, and a week has passed already.  Where does the time go?

Over the weekend, I was playing with some baby announcement ideas, so I thought it would be great to share what I've created here today.

I actually made a total of 10 of these birth announcements, but silly me, didn't photograph the whole group of them.  These cards do not open, but instead, you turn it over to read the birth announcement information.  I do have a photo of the front and back of them, so you can see.



I kept the back side pretty simple, since I didn't want to have anything distracting from the information that will be written there.  =)

The papers that I used are basic cardstock, and the blue shading was created using Stampin' Up ink, in Bordering Blue, and Brocade Blue.  I used navy blue embossing powder randomly around the edges, and then a touch of paint to add to my "distressed look".   The oval frame cut from nestabilities, is water color paper, inked with Distress inks, as well as some gold colored perfect pearl powder, and sprayed with a mist of water.  How about that GORGEOUS Baby???  I remember when this first arrived on my doorstep, I went crazy... This has got to be the most beautiful of all baby stamps I've seen.  "Sweet Dreams" truly is Sweet, whether it's used for either a boy or a girl!!!

I love how Elisabeth Bell has captured that sweet innocent look, and so life like too.  Simply Precious!  Wouldn't you agree?

I hope that you have been inspired today!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
