We're Expecting a New Baby in the Family!

Today is my first post for the Critter Sketch design team.  Our challenge this week, #85, is to make a card or project with this layout design. It is pretty simple and you should have no trouble designing with this as your beginning point.

I made my card for my new daughter-in-law's parents.  The kids just announced that they are expecting a baby in June and I thought that I would send the grandparents-to-be a card of congratulations.  This will be their first grand baby but it is my 6th, Woohoo!

We don't know if it will be a girl or a boy so I thought I would include both pink and blue in the card color scheme.

Card Recipe:
Paper: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Kaiser Craft Magic Happens Collection
Markers: Copics - C1, 3, 5, R83, Y.6, 12, E01, 02, B23, 24
Embellisments: Wild Orchard Ribbon

Our sponsor this month is Inky Impressions:  Stop by the shop and check out all their great stamps, paper and other card making supplies!

Don't forget to check out all the cards the new design team created for your inspiration.

Have a wonderful day!
