Just Blessed

A congratulations card created for a friend who just had a baby. Ruth, over at Paper and Pearls, welcomed a third beautiful baby into their family about a month ago. He's beautiful! Hopefully she has already received this card so I'm not ruining the surprise! :-)

This card was created with some of my favorite stamps from Papertreyink. One of the things I love about acrylic stamps is that you can alter the layout of an image. The "blessed" sentiment has been bend to fit the circle.

And how about those photo corners? Aren't they great? Nichole Heady posted a tutorial on her site on how to create these with a scalloped heart punch. (Check out the link for other ideas on how to use scalloped punches - Nichole is a creative genius!)

The patterend paper is by Basic Grey and the circle heart is a piece of chipboard covered with more Basic Grey paper. The darker green cardstock (Always Artichoke) is by Stampin' Up! and is one of my favorite colors. Notice that little piece of ribbon? Perfect for covering up a small mistake! **giggle** I got a little crazy with my paper piercing and ended up with a few holes too close together. Ah, ribbon, the perfect solution!

Happy Monday!
