Expecting Congratulations

A good friend of mine at work recently told me she was very exciting. So I wanted to make her a card!

Well when I started I looked for a sketch, any sketch, for some inspiration and found this one on the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge site (#29).

I ended up making my cut a little bigger than expected so I had to move the sentiment. I am happy with the end layout regardless.

I also saw that the Fantabulous Cricut site where running a Square, green and gold challenge (# 51) and as I didn't know what sex the baby is it was perfect colours to use!

I am happy to be making use of a very neglected cartridge and to use a cut never used before!!

Card Specs
Stamp/Image: EK Success Baby Multi-Stamp

Patterned Paper: DCWV Nanna's Nursery Baby Boy and The Green Stacks
