Congratulations and Jubilations

I have made this card for a lovely young lady at work who recently announced she is expecting her first baby, I was so pleased for her and wanted to let her know and what better way than with a card. Her favourite colour is fuchsia so pink petticoat to the rescue, I have used one of the new colour collection range and even paper pieced her dress.

I bought this stamp in the Elzybels closing down sale and have only used her once before so I am entering this into Lisa's Waste not Wednesday Challenge. Also the ribbon bow was from a box of chocolates so recycling as well lol, of  course it meant I had to eat the chocolates so as to free the ribbon but it was a small price to pay.

Ingredients
Image: Elzybells
Papers: Pink Petticoat
Cardstock: Fresh paint from Target
Embossing: Lattice from Stampin up
