She's Here! She's Here!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!! 

It's week 33 of our WSC Getting Sketchy and we have another fun sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC33!

A friend just had a little girl, so I decided to use this week's Sketch to create a card for them, along with a matching tag to add to my gift.

I started by stamping this darling image from WTG My How You've Grown from My Favorite Things in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored it with Copic Markers.  The sentiment,
"She's Here" is from the new á la modes in Bundle Of Baby and I stamped it twice onto a panel cut with the Bracket Tab Die-Namics.

I used My Favorite Felt in Puff Cloud White to create the roses, which were cut with the Rolled Rose Die-Namics and Mini Rolled Rose Die-Namics (currently being restocked).  I added a pearl in the center of each rose.  I used the GORGEOUS new Fancy Flourish Die-Namics (currently being restocked) to add some elegance to the card.  LOVE that!  Some machine stitching, lace trim and Blossom Twine finish off the front, along with a pearl in each corner. 

For the inside I added some more patterned paper, which is all Lost and Found Market Street, along with this GORGEOUS quote from Clearly Sentimental About Babies:
"Making the decision to have a child is momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body".  I LOVE this quote and it is SO unbelievably true.

While I was making the card, I decided to create a little tag to add to my gift.  I cut the base of the tag with the AWESOME new Tag You're It Die-Namics and then, using the Sweet Stack Label Die-Namics as well as the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics (for the larger circle), I created a focal point to add the baby's name, Felicity, which I stamped using the Banner Day Alphabet.  I also added another rose and flourish to match the card.  LOVE.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card and tag today:
