A Baby Will Be Strolling In... and for 2S4Y

I think it's been at least 2 weeks since I've been able to do a card using one of the awesome sketches over at 2 Sketches 4 You, this week is Kazan's sketch:

My brother and his lovely wife are having a baby!! Due in February...they told us a couple weeks ago so I'm a little late on getting my congratulations card to them. So here it is using Kazan's awesome sketch:

For the center of the flowers I used Black Diamond Stickles and then Glossy Accents over the stickles, not quite sure I liked how it came out:

And here's the front of the envie:

And the back of the envie:

Baby Formula for this creation:

Nikki the card and envelope are awesome. You continually come up with beautiful creations.

I have just drawn my candy over at Scossie Jane's, sorry you didn't win, but if you e-mail me your snail mail address, I'll RAK some of those Heidi Swapp, glitter flowers into the post. We sell them at the shop I work in here in Perth, WA. So, I wouldn't know where to source them in your part of the world.

Thanks for taking part in my blog candy and I do love to read your comments, they keep my mojo going. LOL!!!

And your site is just so full of inspiration, love it.

Love Jane xx

You know, you and I have something in common. You want to give something the person just can't resist keeping. This is just spectacular. Every thing you did is so creative and perfect. What a cute cute keepsake. The grown baby will look back and know how excited the Aunt was about the coming birth.
