Flowers for Baby Girl

So it seems like most of the pregos I know are having (or just gave birth to) boys, but as it happens I find myself in need of two baby girl cards for showers this weekend.  So here's one I came up with (you already saw the Baby Cakes card).

And the inside:

The picture isn't the greatest, but rest assured that even though it's stamped in Pistachio Pudding, the sentiment is perfectly easy to read IRL.  My photos have just been a bit lacking of late, despite the bright sunshine...oh no wait, it was bright and sunny earlier, but we're back to clouds now.  Such is England.  (Don't believe me; I'm really going to miss England.)

This card was only produced thanks to the proper application of chocolate, Disney songs, and a couple of challenges.  First up, I used today's brand-new challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch:

I actually had lots of ideas for this sketch when I saw it, but I needed this baby card so it came first.  I thought the colors from Around the World would be great for a baby girl card:

This actually took me a ridiculously long time to make.  I started with the Postage Stamp punch behind the flowers, but it was just too big for the delicate little Petite Petals, so then I tried a couple more things before I ended up with my two sizes of scalloped circles.  I thought about putting some Candy Dots in the flower centers but I thought that might be one thing too many; I already wonder if this card really counts as CAS.  Oh well, it's done now!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Cheers, peeps!

I do like the colors and that it's not so obviously a baby card -- it's sophisticated!
