Welcome, baby

This is my first attempt at a MUSE challenge, and this is the gorgeous card that has inspired my entry:


How beautiful is it??

Anyway, I stayed with the baby theme, and made a notelet, keeping it very CAS and maintaining the pink/white theme. I loved the vast expanse of white with just a splash of pink. Not a colour scheme I work with very often, so it was a treat!

Welcome baby

My baby pin was cut out of a piece of really cute strawberry DSP on a friend’s Cricut machine (a long time ago!)  Unfortunately, I don’t recall the name of the cartridge the pin was from.  I embossed the notelet background to give it a soft ‘baby blanket’ look  and tied the sentiment to the base of the pin with some satin cord. A couple of little pink pearls to embellish, and we’re done!

And that’s it!
