Baby Congrats!

When I heard about two friends of mine that were expecting, I instantly came up with some cards that I could send them to celebrate the occasion. I thought that if such big news was being shared, a card was definitely needed. It was also a great excuse to get out my Who's That Girl? - She's Having A Baby set from My Favorite Things. (I got the set cause I found it cheap and I knew I would be needing it someday...this is that first someday!)

I followed the sketch over at Cute Card Thursdays:

Here's my take:

I went to one of my favorite techniques, paper piecing, for this card. I then used the same paper for the two horizontal panels. Using my resist watermark ink, I stamped the "congratulations," one of the sentiments in the set.

Thanks for stopping by!
