Baby shower card.


Yesterday I went to my 1st baby shower ever, it was fun and I had a good time. Don't get confused it was not MY baby shower, just the 1st one I went to. In France we usually celebrate a baby after his/her birth, not before. I don't know if we are more superstitious, but to us it seems weird to throw a party for a baby before the star of the show is actually here! The nice thing about the american way is that it celebrates the Mom! ;-)
The future Mom is expecting a little girl, and I got her a chocolate brown Sleepywrap (http://www.sleepywrap.com/, I got one for myself too but I'm not telling what color yet! ;-)), so I had to go with brown and pink, which is one of my favorite color combo, alongside the brown and light blue. I went to Babies R us this week-end and was surprised by the number of clothes with those color combos, very cute!
Anyway, a very simple card with no stamping. My Cuttlebug was giving me a very hard time and refused to cut anything (more investigation is needed...). Funny how I am always drawn to the polka dots embossing folder for baby cards... :-)

This is lovely. I adore the colour combo.

I now have a cuttlebug too!!! Yay! I've been making a few things with it but not really had chance to have a proper play but so far I am loving it, especially those embossing folders - aren't they great?!
