Pippa Rose

Soooo, today I want to share with you a card I actually made a while ago, but for some reason never blogged about, and I have no idea why because it is just so pretty.

This is a card I made for my friend when she had her little girl, Pippa Rose, back in April.  Seems so long ago now when I say that, but at the same time it still seems like only yesterday.  Yet, my friend seemed to be pregnant forever!!!

To make this card, I used a pink blank (girl, so obviously pink) and layers it up with some pink spotty paper from my stash.  I think this may have been a digi paper, but I can't remember where it came from.

I used a Lili of the Valley die-cut, which I got on my last trip to the shop, and is just so pretty.  I layered this onto some gauze (also from my last trip to the LOTV shop) and added some pink teddy ribbon from my stash along the bottom.

I then printed Pippa's name in black straight onto the dotty paper.  I do adore her name - it is so pretty (but she is more likely to get called Pip-Pop, which I suppose is an improvement on 'Crab', which her big brother wanted to call her!).  I also love the name 'Rose'.  I wonder if that is because my favourite Disney film is Sleeping Beauty (who I have been doing an amazingly good impression of lately - I'm sure living on Lucozade and Caffiene until I get my next B12 injection can't be that good for me, but never mind).

Finally, in honour of her name, I added three small paper roses from my stash.

I just think this card is so pretty, and I have added the stamp from LOTV to my wishlist (along with most of the rest of their stamps!).

Anyway, I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:
