Another baby girl card...

When I was making my last baby card, which was featured in this post, I decided that it only made sense to make two cards. After all, my desk was filled with girly papers and baby stamps, so why not?

I decided to use a swing-card die set by Sizzix for my card base.

I found some pretty pastel heart-patterned paper in my stash that was perfect for my background panels. The flowers were cut with a set of graduated flower dies (not sure of the brand, and I'm half-way across the country so can't run down to my craft room to check), and the leafy flourish is a Cheery Lynn die.

The little bird came from a Sizzix stamp and die set. It was the perfect size for my card!

The stamps used on this card are all from My Craft Spot. It's the only set of baby stamps that I have, so if I want something different, I have to create it on my Cameo or the computer.

The scalloped and pierced circle dies were all part of my swing card die set.

On the back side of my swinging circle, I added another stamped sentiment and a couple of flowers. I felt they needed a little leaf, so I cut another flourish (Cheery Lynn), cut off a couple of the larger leaves and nestled them next to my little flowers. I thought this added a nice touch to an otherwise plain-looking area of my card.

We are currently having a grand time in Oregon. We went with my son and daughter and their families on a 10-mile bike ride yesterday and then went out for a yummy Mexican meal (my favorite!).

Today we are enjoying the beautiful weather in our son's gorgeous back yard.

I hope you're having as much fun this week as I am. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Oh Cheryl, this is so pretty. And a great idea, I need to start making 2 or 3 at a time. Thanks for all your kind visits and comments. I think things have quieted down in my area of the world. Have a lovely week.

Totally sweet - I "think" I have this sizzix die somewhere in my collection. Should really organize my dies some day. The pinks are so soft and girly.
