Beautiful Bundle of Joy

A very sweet friend just gave birth to her first child...a beautiful baby girl, so I made this card for her.

I thought a stair step card would be fun for this special occasion. To create the stair step base, I started with a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock measuring 5 1/2" x 11". I scored along the 5 1/2" side at: 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 4-1/4", 6" and 8-1/2". I picked out my designer papers - one polka dot design came from the Tea Party pack the other is a retired Pretty in Pink Designer Print. I cut those 1/4" smaller than the measurement of each "stair front". After adhering those in place I started to add my embellishments.
I started with the main images...the bear & giraffe from Bundle of Joy. They were stamped on watercolor paper, colored and then cut out. The flowers were made using the Birds & Blooms Sizzlets and the Boho Blossoms punch. The sentiment came from the Congrats stamp set that was available this past SAB. The sentiment was layered using the new Modern Label punch with one of the Lots of Labels Sizzlets.
Looks like another beautiful day here...the last day of my hubby's vacation. It is also the last day of the music festival we've been attending all week. Tonight we'll be seeing 3 Doors Down & Jet. With him off and us running to a different show all week long it hasn't left much time for stamping or visiting any of my favorite blogs...but things should be settling down again after today. Thanks for visiting me today!

I love this card! As usual, an awesome water color job. Cute bow on teddy's neck, and the layers of flowers tops it off.
