Oh, baby!

Here's a sweet card for my cousin's baby shower next week.  Her first baby and as you can see, a boy!  I went to Marshall's yesterday and as I was walking through the checkout line, I saw these gorgeous American Craft Christmas paper packs that were only $1.50 due to being after Christmas!!  Can you beat that?  Nope!  So, I snatched up 3 different packs.  And now, I am wishing that I had grabbed the other 3 or 4 packs, 'cause I love the patterns.  So, these two patterned papers are actually for Christmas, but I think they were fabulous for a baby card.

I never thought that Marshall's would have papercrafting supplies. I need to check out other stores more. Love the card and the papers you selected. It all comes together so well. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Creations Challenges. Happy New Year.
