A new baby!

A new grand baby is on the way!!! This will be our 7th grand baby and #7 is just as exciting as the first one!  The only sad part is that my daughter and son-in-law live 2000 miles away. (They are not the parents of all the grandbabies, just one - soon to be 2.) Anyway, I am sending them this card to let them (again)  know how excited and happy I am.

This card has also been posted for the Paper Cutz Challenge #55 where the theme was anything goes.
I also posted this one for Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #82. As you can see by the sketch below, I took some 'artistic license' with this sketch but I think that is allowed...right?

Materials Used:
The carriage is an old favorite of mine - cut a 3" circle and then remove a wedge shaped section. Easy Peasey!!
Scallop border cuts were all from MS All Occasion Cakes cartridge.
The font is from Cindy Loo (I love this Cindy Loo font but tonight I noticed that the MS cartridge I used has a very similar font so if you have that one, check it out.)
The sentiment 'small wonder' is from Stampin' Up!
Papers: (in green & peach because we don't yet know if it should be pink or if it should be blue) Core'dinations, The Paper Factory, Jeneva & company
Ribbon and pearls from my stash, and last but never least... Tim Holtz distressed inks.
