Cute as a button

My friend recently had a baby girl, so I was inspired to put together this card.

I attended a get-together of PTI stampers from the DC area a couple weeks ago, and I was lucky to use other people's stuff! I cut out and stamped some of the bitty backgrounds that you see on this card, as well as some button things.


I stamped the background using Polka Dot Basics II in Vintage Cream ink. The sentiment comes from Baby Button Bits.


On the inside, I used Inside and Out: Baby to add a verse and congratulations.

This card works for the current Passion for Papertrey challenge .

Thanks for looking!
