For The Mom-To-Be....

Good Friday morning! I was asked to make a card for a baby shower...the mom-to-be is expecting twins! I made 3 cards total; will share the others later. With my first card, I wanted to focus on the mom-to-be. I thought of this cute A Muse stamp that is perfect for paper piecing. I paired it with some DP I've had in my stash for a long time (love the pretty paisley!), added some punched flowers and Swarovski crystals to give it a bit of extra sparkle. Inside the card is a white panel that reads:

Expecting JOY...
...TWIN boys!

Image: A Muse
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, The Paper Studio DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Black Marker
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals
Extras: EK Success Flower Punches

I'm entering my card in this challenge: Ruby's Rainbow: Cute and Cuddly

Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your weekend!
