Best Wishes

A few weeks ago I made a card for my sister, who was expecting a baby. I couldn't blog about the card until now, as she lives in Germany and I didn't want to ruin the surprise! Well, thankfully I can report that she gave birth to a healthy baby boy :D We are all delighted for baby John's parents and can't wait to give him a BIG squeeze!!
This is the card when it is "closed". 

I embossed a scalloped circle, and stuck a circle with the stamped sentiment on to it.

 I used some washi tape on both the card and tag. I punched a hole through the flower and used a brad and some silver elastic to keep the card closed.

This is when you open the card -


I used my cricut to cut out the lady, and I used the shadow option also for the brown background layer. I cut out the dress onto some matching pink paper. I cut out some letters for 'Liv' and stuck everything down.
A close up of the little embellishment on her bag.


The card then opens as per a normal card, where I wrote a message.

I hope to enter this card into the challenges below:
