Baby Shower Card

I had a baby shower to go to today. Do you find that even though you are always making cards you never have the one you need when you need it? I made this card this morning before I left for the shower. One of my closest friend's son and wife are having a baby girl in a few months.

I used Jen Del Muro's Saturday sketch for my card. Always a great site for inspiration! The stamp is from American Art Stamp and the sentiment from Impression Obession. The image is colored with Copics, a gold metallic Prism color pencil and a glitter pen. The lace trim I just picked up at my local scrapbook store. I added ribbon, a little heart charm, and a button. The edges of the papers are distressed with a sponge and distressing ink. 

Hope everyone one had a nice weekend. Gotta love SUMMERTIME!
