8x8 commissioned baby card

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world and the sun is shining for you as it is here, albeit and tad hazy...hugs

A work colleague asked me to make her two 8x8 cards, one a golden wedding anniversary and the other a baby card as her daughter is expecting a little girl within a month. This will be her first grandchild and she is sooooooooooooo excited :o)

Anyhow, here is the baby card to be going on with!

I used a Papermania 8x8 card blank.
White pearlised panel embossed with Embossalicious A4 emb. folder  which I think is perfect for baby cards.
All elements inside and out (except the sentiment which was cut with Spellbinder oval and pierced oval dies) were created by me in SCAL, and cut on my ancient Cricut.
All pink card used it Coredinations. 
Babygrow banner and sentiment are raised on foam sticky pads to give a bit of dimension.

It has been quite a while since I used my Cricut, and I really enjoyed re-acquainting myself with it.  It is the original version which I bought before we were able to connect them to the PC way back in 2007,  so it has done me proud.
I coloured the safety pins with Copic marker pen.
I filched the verse from a DC  member and I think it is perfect for a little girl, printed using Bauhaus 93 font :o)

So sweet Jackie, love the patchwork embossing and your die cuts. Been so long since I used my Cricut. Thought when I had my own craft room I would have a place just for it, thought wrong! Lying on the floor under table gathering dust. Carol xx
