Enjoy Every Precious Moment!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!

Here is a card I created using the FABULOUS MAY SFYTT sketch again!  I find myself always reaching for Jen's sketches when I need some mojo. 

Taylor announced a few weeks ago that she and Jon are expecting a baby girl!  I was SO excited when I saw that (I am ALL about the girls over here) so I immediately set to making her a card!

I used the GORGEOUS new Bringing Home Baby set from Taylored Expressions.  I LOVE the carriage stamp in this set and for my card today, I opted to paper piece it.  I shaded around the image with Copic Markers to make it pop a bit.  All of the patterned paper is from Lime Twist Life Of The Party from My Minds Eye and I used the Scallops & Circles Impression Plate on the Kraft background panel for a bit more texture.

The sentiment, "Enjoy every precious moment", also from Bringing Home Baby, was stamped onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and then I cut it into a little flag and placed it over the focal panel.  I added a white satin ribbon and bow that I created with The Bow Easy, and sewed all of the edges with my sewing machine.

I finished off the inside as well.  I stamped the darling little sheep and colored them with Copic Markers, and stamped the sentiment, "It's A Girl" in between them.  These stamps are also from Bringing Home Baby.  Some more machine stitching on the inside finishes it off.

Here is the Impression Plate I've used on my card:
