Retro Sketches and CR84FN

I'm so thrilled to have actually finished this card in time for Retro Sketches!

A friend had her 4th baby: first boy!


I know my mom will be so proud that I actually went through my patterned papers to find this beauty! ;)

I'm also entering this into CR84FN's current color challenge, although my blue is lighter than the called for denim.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a stunning card...cute design. I have worked for the Print VIP cards company and this design inspire me so much. I would like to try once to design like this, if you don't mind. I appreciate this.

Oh, my gracious, Dana! This is precious as precious can be! And such a great design!

So sorry that I left a comment for you on one of your Mom's posts. I noticed it said her name at the bottom, but I was blog hopping and tired and not paying attention to the watermarks and whatnot, and lots of times, on other blogs, the person actually writing the post isn't the same as the one whose name is at the bottom. Anyway, I'll pay closer attention ;). Hope you have a blessed weekend! Hugs!
