Welcome Baby!!!

Edited to add:  So excited that this card was chosen as the winner of the "Oh Baby" challenge at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge blog - SSCB#9.    Thanks Serendipity team and to everyone who entered with their beautiful baby creations!

Hello Everyone,

I needed another baby card this week and decided to play along with a couple of challenges.  This week Cheery Lynn Designs has an "Anything Goes" challenge.  You can find the info:  HERE.  Since anything goes I decided to play with my favorite French Scalloped Flair stackers  and French Flair Stackers from Cheery Lynn for my baby card.

Serendipity Stamps is also hosting an "Oh baby" challenge:  HERE.  So I also reached for Serendipity Stamps "Lamb with Heart".  I love using this stamp to welcome new babies to the world!

Here is my card:

After stamping and coloring my image with Copic markers, I decided to make a border around my white mat using some pink tissue paper cut into strips.  I gathered the tissue as I glued it to the back of the panel to create this sweet ruffled edge.  I love using the tissue paper that my stamps are often delivered in to create this type of ruffle - a great way to recycle! 

Thanks for taking a look at my card!
