Card for a (pregnant) friend

I have a friend who is pregnant and I wanted to make her and her husband a card to congratulate them. I didn't want to say "welcome baby" or something to that effect, as clearly the baby is not here yet! I made this card and I think that it fits what I was trying to do.

I used Background Basics: Retro for the plaid background ( I won this set from the May Blog Hop, thanks PTI!), the pram and sentiment come from Bitty Baby Blessings.

Here's the inside of the card:

I made an extra to put in my Etsy shop, so you can find it there if you are interested (top right hand side). Thanks for taking a look!

Stamps: Background Basics: Retro, Bitty Baby Blessings
Ink: White (Stampin' Up), Dark Chocolate, Vintage touch ink duo

That background basic retro is so tempting. You paired it up nicely with the baby set, and I like the pop up of the carriage.

Love the white background on the Kraft cs. One of my favourite combos.
