A trio of baby cards

I was asked recently by a woman at my church if I would make some cards 
for an upcoming baby shower.
Six new moms were being honoured and they wanted me to make a card for each of them.

Of course, I said yes.
(Any excuse to make a card, right?)

Well, I went looking through my stash of cards to see if I had any on hand and I found these three.
Since I needed one girl card and five boy cards, these three would work perfectly.

Now, I only needed three more.

I decided to go with the same colour scheme and use some of the same patterned papers.
I also decided it would be fun to pair my new PTI hearts cover plate with a sentiment from one of my favourite sentiments stamp sets -- Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say.


I thought it would be fun to add an animal to each one.
So I used my Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamps
and paper pieced two foxes and a raccoon.




Thanks for looking!
