Getting pinky with it

I have no idea where that title came from, but that should provide some pretty good insight into my current mood :) Things have been a bit nutso these past couple weeks, but I took some time to create this morning - trust me, I needed the therapy!

I have a couple friends who are expecting, and I know at least 2 of them will be welcoming little girls. I used this week's Mojo sketch as my starting point, pulled out some BasicGrey paper (Euphoria collection) and this card is the final result. I love to use this verse for baby cards, and the font on this stamp (Whipper Snapper) is particularly fun. The final touch was some layered primas, topped with a pink rhinestone.

I wanted to make another card, and I was dying to use these beautiful Christine Adolph papers. They're 12x12, but most have strips or panels so can be easily cut down to card size. The background paper is foiled, so is absolutely stunning IRL. I accented it with a small strip of ledger type paper (wiped down with old paper distress ink), then tied on some organdy ribobn for the finishing touch. The inside reads "May your day be steeped in joy and warmed by love." (smARTworks) Very simple, but I love the elegant result.

Well, therapy time is over - have a wonderful weekend!!

Pretty cards! I would have never thought to use that verse for a baby card and it's so perfect. Thank you for an excellent idea.
