I also think it's so neat how and inspiration transforms to a card. It happens with every one i do but I rarely step back and explain how. So let's start with this one. I was standing in the craft isle staring at papers when I spotted a baby kit. As I looked at those big letters, this stamp popped into my head, then I saw the blue papers and the diaper pin in the kit, well I had to have it! So here is my first attempt with some of the new goodies. I have to say though it's not as froofroo as I had hoped lol...

It's beautiful Lori, just perfect! They don't all have to be fu fu.
Thanks for your comments on Tillie's dress!. To answer your question, yes, the fabric came already ruffled. I bought mine from my local craft store where it sells for 4-5 dollars less a yard then online, but they don't have a very large selection of colors. Some people find it hard to work with but I didn't have any issues. ruffle fabric.com is a good place to go if you're looking for a better selection. If you find some be careful, you will probably fall in love :)

This is one of the nicest and cutest baby cards I have seen for a while.
It is so fresh and clean looking and oh so cute. The touch of ink on the edges is very appealing and the safety pin finishes it off beautifully.
Thank you for sharing your gorgeous card with us at Penny Black and More and good luck in our prize draw.
We will have more great prizes on offer next month too and hope you will join us then.

Always so much fun to read the 'background' of a crafter's card. This little baby card came together beautifully. You are absolutely right, the elements fit perfectly together with the big letters, the gorgeous image, the safety pin and that bow..WOW!
Nicely done. :)

Thank you SO much for playing along with us at The Squirrel & The Fox for our challenge.
Good luck to you and we hope you come back next week to play along again.
