Welcome Baby Carys

Here's a wigwam style card I made to celebrate the arrival of our next door neighbour's  baby daughter, Carys, who was born on Monday.  She came home from hospital today and I was lucky enough to get a cuddle, she's sooo cute!
 The wigwam shape was made with three 6x6 pieces of card, scored and folded diagonally, then glued together leaving one side free.  I attached a magnetic closure to the free side so that the card can be opened out flat for writing and delivering, then fastened in place for displaying.  The spotty paper is Papermania from the Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection range.
 The sweet bear image is from Pink Gem, you'll find it in the store here.  It's been coloured, as usual, with Promarkers and highlighted with a little Glamour Dust.
I used some pale pink lace to create a frilly frame for the image and added a button topped bow in matching spotty ribbon.
The "Welcome Baby Carys" sentiment was computer generated, then die cut and inked with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.  I added another button topped bow and a large heart shaped button.
The circular sentiment is also from Pink Gem, it can be found here, it's perfect for adding the date of birth of the new arrival for a personal touch.  I die cut it with a Splendid Circles Spellbinders die and coloured the centre with two shades of pink Promarker.  This was layered onto a doily and a die cut scalloped circle. Three resin roses finish it off.
