 Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a glorious day. I had such a busy Saturday, that I am looking forward to a nap and a quiet afternoon once church gets out. Our church participated in I Heart Treasure Valley. We went out in our community and joined with other churches doing work projects  in our community. After that I had to rush (really rush) to get to a baby shower and then I left the baby shower and went directly to hear Nick Vujicic speak. If you have never heard him, I urge you to google him and watch his videos on you tube. He is amazing. Needless to say, I am exhausted this morning. 
On to my projects! This is the card I made for the baby shower. The stamp was a gift from a sweet friend from across the pond, Shirley. It is my go to stamp for baby. The new mom to be chose blue and green for the baby's room. So I tried to stick with the colors for my name frame and the card. (Although I went more pastel when making the card.) The DP is from an older pad that has long since lost it's cover, so I have no idea who made it, but it has some yummy paper in it. I used one of my new Spellbinders dies to frame the image. The pretty jute ribbon is from SU and I am getting more of this as I am totally in love with it.  
The name frame paper is from SU and some I bought at Craft Warehouse. I used my Cricut to cut out the letters and then added bits and bobbles from my stash. The new mom to be seemed to be pleased with it. I hope you have enjoyed seeing this fun project..
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

Both are quite beautiful Patty. The elephant is sooo sweet and love the muted colors you chose.....that was a nice gift from your friend. The word frame is going to be so enjoyed by the little fellow as he grows up. While baby themes are nice...which I might do, this is going to go with him threw out his life as a young man to an older man....I think it is great!!!!
