♥ Thank Heaven for Little Girls ♥

Yesterday it was 86 degrees here. We went from the 50's to almost 90! Today it will be in the 60's. Crazy weather, but I'll take it! What's the weather by you?
I love making baby cards, especially for girls. Love the pastel girlie colors! I don't have a girl, just 2 boys, but my niece just found out she is having a girl. Yay! So this card is for her.
I used a new Making Memories, Bravissimo medal, which I picked up at Michael's. Love the metal frame around it. They have so many different shapes, sizes and sentiments. So fun! Love these! I also used some Girls Paperie papers, chipboard pieces, ribbon and trim, mini roses, glitter and pearls.

I used this week's sketch over at Card Patterns.
I was also inspired by the following challenges:

Flourishes, Bring Back Beautiful 09 - the beauty of spring time colors!
Color Chic: Project using ribbon. And for some great ribbon, visit The Ribbon Jar! They have everything you are looking for in ribbon!
Anything Goes Challenge Blog: Pearls
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes with something new!
Cute and Girly Challenge Blog: Cute and Girly

I hope you have a wonderful day! ♥ Be on the lookout for a giveaway soon! ;) ♥

Hugs...

Love the sentiment. I had three boys & a grand son so I am still waiting lol Weather wise it's gone cool and windy (normal April weather) but we were spoilt last week with a few day of what seemed like Summer.

Love Dawn xx
