It's a Girl

My niece and her husband just had a baby girl, their first child and I am so  happy for them and have  put together this little card to celebrate the occasion. It will be off in the mail shortly! I used  a Mo Manning digital stamp called 'Spit Happens', made my own sentiment,added a few bought flowers, made a little bow, added a few embellishments and it was done.

Colour Medium: Copics (El3, E00,E000) and Prismacolor markers
Die Cuts: Spellbinders for the image and sentiment frame;  ProvoCraft die for the heart and stemmed flowers; Marianne Designs for the swirls under the flowers.
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Hearts
Paper: Stampin' Up
