New Baby Card

I made this New Baby card over the weekend. I sliced about an inch off the front so I could fix the B.A.B.Y. wording on the inside but so you could still see it on the front. This was part of another set available as a freebie from Canon Creative Park, (loads to hunt out) I've just added a punched stamp shape to the back of the letters and fixed them on with 3D foam pads.
The 3D decoupage sheet, with the lovely little animals on the dresser, came from Craft Creations, via my local (not very crafty) shop. I think it was about 39p so, well worth it! I've layered it using silicone glue. I knew I had some blue gingham somewhere, but could I find it? No, that's what happens when you tidy up! So I quickly hunted through Google and came up with this lovely gingham freebie from Activity Village . Other colours are available, in fact you'll find all sorts over there. The pink safety pin, (I didn't have blue!) tiny buttons and ribbon were from stash. For the insert, I fixed two scalloped circles onto one side of the paper and printed over them, then peeled off the circles so there's a nice white space to write on, or even add a sentiment later. I then printed on the other side too. I haven't used any glitter yet, buy I might do.
I've posted this on the timer, so I hope it comes out ok and that there's not too many spelling mistakes!!
