A very simple baby card

Hey everybody,
I'm still busy with card I can't show you but on October 13th my Copic Marker Europe design team colleague Lydia gave birth to a little girl named Sophia. Of course I wanted to congratulate Lydia, her husband Gerwin and their older daughter Elise so a card had to be made. Because I really didn't have all that much time and wasn't feeling very well this past weekend I decided to go for a more simple card then you are used to from me.
On Splitcoast Stampers I had seen a lot of cards with layouts like these (much better though) where one piece of design paper was used in different layers. I do think it works better with larger prints or with handstamped design paper like some of the people on Splitcoast Stampers used though so I will have to try this again another time. This paper is a very old one from My Minds Eye and I have been saving this one, I think it's perfect and sweet and just right for a card for a new born little girl. The adorable little stamp is by Whipper Snapper Designs and her name is Bella. I'm pretty sure that the sentiment is also by Whipper Snapper Designs but I can't find that one on their site anymore, glad I have it though because I think it's just precious. The frame behind the sentiment is from my latest Spellbinders set Floral Ovals, I kept seeing this set around and just HAD to have it. All that's left is some cardstock, some pearls and little pieces of a square doily. The stickles that were used here are Diamond and the distress ink used is Tattered Rose.

And the little pieces, just a few this time :).

Well hope you like my simple card and more importantly, hope Lydia will, I send it to her yesterday so hope it has gotten to her by now.

See you later alligator :).
