Hi everyone! The weather here is snowy and cold, the kids are home from school and I figured I might as well try to make a card while my 2 year old is napping.

I made this card for my son's speech therapist who recently told us that she is expecting her second baby. I hope she likes it!

The stamp set I used is a retired set, called Swell News. The dress was stamped twice, once on the decorative paper and again on my main layer. I used the paper piecing technique and I cut out the dress from the decorative paper and placed it over top of my first stamped image. For the rest of the lady image I simply colored it using my SU markers.

My background is embossed using my big shot- I love my big shot, best money spent! I also used the Final Press embossing folder. I added my sentiment and layered it using my circle punches, and then I added my ribbon with the bow.

I followed Monday's clean & simple splitcoast challenge, which was a sketch challenge this week. I think my card is sort of on the border of being CAS, but it still works!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm off to start supper, see you tomorrow!
