Sweet Baby Girl

A good friend had the gift of a new granddaughter at Easter and this is the card I made for her to celebrate Chloe's safe delivery.  I was struggling to find the sentiment I wanted so I posted a request on the MSE's brilliant 'Making Card Ideas' thread to see if anyone knew of it. The next day I found a link that had been left by our fab Padster  and there it was. Spooky or what???? Padster reckons it was the craft angels but I dunno!  Anyway the sentiment is by Paulette of Create with TLC.  I spent a happy hour or maybe two looking at all the brilliant sentiments and this morning has a coughing fit from laughing at her new sentiments.  Please check out Create with TLC, it'll be worth it.

The image is from Funky Kits whose images I adore and it's called Bambino and so very easy to adapt to a boy or a girl.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC, Thank you, Paulette. The background paper is part of First Editions Sweet Owl and I've used one of my new Memory dies for the corners. The flowers and card candy from my ever growing stash.

I'd like to enter the following:
