For Baby

One of my colleagues at work just had a baby.  We had a baby shower for her... in the nick of time!  I created a card and tag for the new mama with her baby theme in mind.  Rhonda and her husband decorated their daughter's room in butterflies.  I think this card fits the bill.

Mother and Baby

Memory Box paper is the central portion of the design... a sheet of vellum has the flutter of butterflies and the sentiment.  A slim nosegay of roses and ribbon balances the design.  And I'm not sure you can tell, but I clipped a small safety pin in the ribbon...

I created a quick tag for the gift with patterned paper scraps.  So super fast and a perfect time-in to the card.  I didn't really capture the shimmer of the gold gift bag, but the pink is so pretty with it.

Thanks for visiting!
