Pink for a Girl

It seems like ages since my last post, I've been enjoying the summer holidays with my husband and young son, but I've been back to a spot of crafting again over the last few days.
I've got a baby card to share today, made with a cute as can be Lili of the Valley stamp, coloured with Promarkers.  I couldn't resist adding a little Glamour Dust to the bubbles for a hint of sparkle.  I cut the topper out with one of my favourite Spellbinders dies, Floral Ovals.
 The papers are the latest installment in Papermania's Capsule Collection, they're called Wild Rose, and they're in the prettiest shades of pink and cream, just perfect for baby girl projects, the buttons are from the same range too.
To embellish, I added some cream cotton lace, pink satin ribbon with a large matching bow, a cute birth certificate charm, from Live, Love Crafts, and a stamped sentiment, done with a Personal Impressions stamp on a punched tag.
