Sweet Baby Girl

A new baby girl arrived in our family this week, and of course, it was a great opportunity to make a fun card to celebrate the happy occasion. 

The paper stacks used for this card were Embellish by Dena and the polka dotted papers that I had in my stash. The cute little animals were punched out of one of the pages in the Embellish papers, and the sentiment was also on one of the pages of that stack. I had been sewing with pink thread and had my machine out, so it was a great opportunity to put some zig-zag stitching on the card. It was a lot of fun, but not something I do very often just because it is extra work to pull out my sewing machine and get it threaded up with the right color of thread. But it really adds a sweet touch to cards. A 1 1/2 inch punch was used on the animals and they are attached with pop dots; the sentiment was attached with pop dots, also. A yellow ribbon adds the final touch.

Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
