Baby's First Birthday

This weekend I got to witness the sweetest thing, it was a baby's first birthday.  Little Ella is such a sweet and beautiful girl.  She has the biggest brown eyes ever and you just sink into them.  I wanted to make her a special birthday card for that special occassion.  I had prevously created the merry-go-round for another project, but didn't end up using it and that inspired me to make this new card.  All the elements (minus the tiny heart) came from Lawn Fawn's Admit One set.  I used the same colors I had used in the merry-go-round and placed them randomly on the embossed background.  I added a little ribbon and some bling, and wah-lah!  Done.  I had fun making this little card for that little girl. Althought it wasn't my original intention, I am going to submit it for this weeks Lawnscaping Challenge, which is using texture.

While I am talking about babies I want to say congrats to Laurel who is a designer on Lawnscaping Challenges.  She just had a baby girl herslef.  It was touch and go for a while, but all is well now and Laurel and sweet Lily are home with their family. Congrats Laurel and family! 


Happy First Birthday Ella!
