Buttons, Bows, & Babies

Back in the groove. Back to the craft table. Back to buttons and bows. And back to babies... other people's babies. {smile} Did I mention, I've missed you... hello, sweet friends.

My dear, darling friend has the BEST style - vintage and fabulous. This card is reserved for her when her little dumpling arrives... full of Papertrey Ink's new Button Boutique and lots of little treasures.

Tip: I lightly sponged the edges of the Parisian doily with some white ink - something subtle that seems to add a little bit of authenticity.

I'm popping this into two of my favorite challenges...

Buttons and Bows {swoon}

and
A lovely color combination, as always.

All supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Button Boutique, I&O Baby, Bitty Baby Blessings; Ink: SU Perfect Plum and Basic Grey; Paper: Rustic Cream, SU Perfect Plum and Pink Pirouette; Patterned Paper: Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue; Tools: Parisian Lace Doily die, Button Card dies, Double-ended Banner dies; Sassy Somethings: Webster's Pages trim, Memrie Mare cabbage rose ribbon, buttons
