It's A Girl!

Well, my cousin Jane's baby arrived last Tuesday - three weeks early!  My Mum was convinced it was going to be a boy (don't ask!) but I hedged my bets and made three of these baby wordbooks - a pink one, a blue one and an ivory one.  Just in case!  This is actually the card my Mum picked to send - mine is still in progress!!  My excuse is that I was waiting to see what it would be! Anyway, Olivia Isla was 6 pound 1 (the same weight as Samuel when he arrived, 5 days overdue!)

I honestly can't remember where the papers come from, but I've printed them so they are digital!  I made the letters in Word Art and then cut them out, layered and added onto the pages.  I've also added glitter glue around the letters.

Ribbon is from my stash along with the princess charm and the embroidery thread is from the Scrap Store.  Just need to get a move on and finish the card from us now!
