It's the little things...

...that make life Big!

I thought this would be a fun sentiment to use for a baby card; something a little different and yet so true, isn't it?! I thought the fonts used in the sentiment would fit with the grandma's attic feel I was looking for as well. The image is from Gina K's set, How Sweet It Is, and is paired with vintage style K&Co. Margo designer papers. After adding the buttons on the sentiment panel I realized that I'd strayed a bit from Jen's original sketch, but the buttons were sewn in place, so no going back. I'll take a week's probation from Jen for this one {wink}!

I went a step further and created a set of thank you notes to match the card. Oh, did I say this card is for a baby shower I'm invited to today? The shower is for our neighbor's new baby daughter, Ada (don't you just love that name?!), so I personalized the notes with an "A". Here's a shot of the ensemble:



Head on over to Jen's blog for the original sketch along with samples from herself and March guest designer, Jenn D. Then take a peek at the rest of the girls' sure-to-please creations.

How sweet are these?! And I do love that name. Also love your little touch of the half-flower -- you're just too clever. And such a fab combo of paper piercing. You rock, girlie!!!
