Dynamic Duos #15

So I keep meaning to make more cards for challenges.
But the summer seems to be drifting away...

Anyway, tonight I actually managed to whip up a few cards.

There's been a few new babies in my life recently.
My new niece arrived in July, and so I whipped up this little card for a friend to give
 to my SIL and BIL

 And I really liked the challenge colours over at Dynamic Duos this week.  So I decided to play along.

The Congratulations sentiment is from the Perfect Punches set.
I used the doily sizzlit and the masking technique. 
A little Smooch Spritz, with Pretty in Pink ink added a nice layer.

I copied the idea for this card from my friend Ange.
Here's a link to her original card.

Of course I also used the Button Buddies set to stamp out that cute baby rattle.
I added pearls to echo the one in the middle of the doily.

And voila, the finished card.  All those layers of cardstock makes for a heavy card.  Good thing its not going in the mail.
