For This Child I Prayed

We know several couples who have had or soon will be having little baby girls.  I made a card for one of them tonight.  I wish all cards went together this easily.  :)

I adhered the gingham paper to the white panel (round the opposite corners first).  Then I used an oval die to cut a "window" in it.  I used the same die to cut out the middle of a floral oval die cut.  I used this die one more time with a scalloped oval to finish the frame.  After assembling the frame, I adhered it to the gingham panel.  The Scripture was attached behind the panel with pop dots, then the entire panel was adhered to the card base with more pop dots.

The little bear was colored with Copics and fussy cut.  The flower got a pearl center and the butterfly was accented with stickles.  Crystal Effects was used on the bear's nose.  The bear was attached to the card front with pop dots.

The frame was accented with pink bling and pearls. 

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, Express-it (image)

Your card is so pretty, Stephanie. I love your layout, especially with the Scripture. The pinks are lovely. One of my favourites has always been gingham. Your colouring and shadings of Baby Bear are fabulous. The little bear looks huggable! Beautiful, Steph! xx Kathryne
