I was asked to make a card for someone who is having twins.  Twins!  That is soooo exciting.  Although, this is her second set, so it might just be old hat for her.  She is having a boy/girl pair so I incorporated both into this card.

This card is fairly simple, but so soft and sweet.  I really resisted the urge to add glitter and bling to the strollers.  I think that glitter would have been nice, but this way it has a nice crisp, clean look to it.  I got to delve into my soft subtles paper for this card.  I used Barely Banana for the card base, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink for the embossed panels, and Barely Banana again for the mat of the stamped image.  The cute little stroller comes from Fun and Fast Notes (#113500).  When I mounted these, I separated the greeting and the image.  The greeting it mounted on the side, and the image is on the base.  This set is a great go to set for making "fun and fast notes"  (perfect name, then).  It is versatile and a great staple in any stamping "pantry".  I dressed it up by using the Whisper White satin ribbon, and the 1/4 gros grain ribbon in Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink.  I think Lisa is finally rubbing off on me.  My bows turned out awesome!!!

Next I will be working on my daughter's birthday invitations.  She is having a FIESTA! type party.  Bold Brights, here I come!

Thanks for stopping by.
