I posted this on Flickr awhile ago, but forgot to post it here; a sweet baby card, which might've been made for an SSC challenge awhile back, but I do these so far ahead, and I design for two groups, that I forget a few times! ;)

For the polka dot background, it might look rather crummy as I didn't have that embossing folder, and so I poked those holes using my handy-dandy stylus.

Instructions: Trim card base and stamp background. Lightly ink doily and fold for a vintage feel, than adhere to card base. Tie bow and attach charm. Cut out kraft paper using die and emboss with stylus. Lightly ink polka dot pattern, than stamp sentiment. Stamp image onto separate piece of kraft, and trim. Adhere to kraft die cut using foam squares. Adhere embellished die cut to card base using foam squares, and top off with small half pearl on elephants eye.

Thanks for stopping in and have a fabulous day!
