Hey people,

Since I had to make a couple of boy baby cards, I thought now would be a really good time to make just a few to have in reserve, so here is a little girl one. I thought I would try the baby theme with one of the Pearlised Gesso backgrounds I made back in July, just to see if an arty background would go with the decidedly very cutesy Stampin Up stamps. I have seen a card similar to this a while back, though I do not now remember who made it, but I have changed lots of the elements to come up with my version. What do you think?

Hi Shell

Very nice card!! The pearlised gesso background works beautifully with the rest of the card. Well done.

I agree with Grace. As a matter of fact, I have some of the blue backgrounds that we did and I'll use them to make some boy baby cards. Most of my daughter's friends are preggers right now, so I'm going to need some!

Yep, the card looks great. Great use for a set that I wasn't sure about.
