Welcome Little Girl…

This is my third baby card that I’ve been working on over the last few days.  I already had a couple of little girls colored for the little girl card that I’m making, but I just had to get this one after I saw it at Mo’s Store.  But I now have some little girls colored ahead if I need them.

She has so many cute little children images.  I’ve also used several dies by Cheery Lynn Designs.  I cut the easel card with stacker dies, then I used a flourish and another leaf at the top. 

I cut the easel card with Cheery Lynn stacking dies, so I would have a different shaped easel card.  I used two different papers by Basic Grey: the paper on the bottom with the pearls is from a Kioshi paper pack.  And the paper on the outside of the image is open stock paper called Euphoria.  I’ve also used some older paper by DCWV.  

I also used my Spellbinders dies and some decorative scissors. The pearls (dots) and the flowers are by Recollections. The sparkly lace is from Hobby Lobby and I’ve used the We R Memories sewing and paper piercing system again. Oh, and I used my new Bow-Easy template, too.  I LOVE it for making bows.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:
