Another card....

Happy Saturday everyone!! 
It is so beautiful here in NC today and it just makes me happy!!  :)  Well, last night I created another Congrats card for Emma Grace's other grandmother!  Hoping she doesn't see it on here before I give it to her at church Sunday, but I couldn't wait to post it!  I just got all girly on it!  I used the same paper on it that I used for "Princess"  Lillian's card because I loved it with the purple and the lace, etc.
I just received my new Cuttlebug machine too and of course had to grab some random scrap paper and cut something and emboss something!!  haha!  Well, I thought they were so cute that I decided to use them on this card!  Why throw them away!?!

For the front of the card, I used my Classic Font cartridge once again for the "Congrats" sentiment and my Martha Stewart doily punch as well as random lace and ribbon.  Oh and you gotta have pink Stickles on a girly card, right?

And here's the inside......I know I probably went a little crazy, but the inside is as important as the outside, right?  I used StampCraft hands and feet stamps with pink ink to dress up the pink polka dot paper from Creative Memories Delight paper pack.  Here I'll write the new Grandma a note congratulating her on her new grandaughter! :)  She is so proud!

And here in a close-up, you'll see my new Cuttlebug creations that I just couldn't throw away!  I decided to ink the edges of the pink Baby die cutouts so they'd show up better and added some CM flowers (Yes, I use these a lot because I think they are just too cute!) with pop dots.  I used the embossing folder that came with my Cuttlebug (I don't even know what it's called!!) on the light green patterned paper and thought that it just went well with my CM flowers! I can't wait to give her this card on Sunday!

Going to try and make a few more cards this weekend, but we'll see what happens!  I will post them of course as soon as I finish!  Have a great weekend all!  It's soooo pretty outside! :)
