Sugar and Spice

Many of you know I have 3 boys. So I always jump at the chance to create something "girlie". I was lucky to help throw a shower for my friend Jen and wanted to give her something personal and meaningful as an "extra". I decided to make her thank you cards and used her daughters nursery as my inspriration. (TIP: Thank you cards are a great gift for a new mommy or mom to be, as their time is limited once the baby is here.) Here is a glimpse of the room. It just oozes girl energy:)

Here is the card I came up with. I was really happy with how it turned out, feminine yet sophisticated too. I LOVE her rocker and wanted to incorporate the Damask into the card.



Paper: Whisper White {100730}; Green Galore (retired); Pink Pirouette {111351}
Stamps: Damask Designs by Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon {109070}

These are adorable thank you's, Shannon! They match her room perfectly. What a great tip to share about making thank you's as a gift for new mommies, too. I have three friends that are expecting right now and I would love to whip up a box of cards for them. Such a great idea! Thank you so much! :)
