It's a Girl -- Finally

There is a baby due very soon in my family. My aunt and uncle have three boys and now they are expecting a baby girl next month.

My aunt loves dragonflies, so I wanted to give a new gift that incorporated them. I bought a cute picture frame and used Alphalicious to add the baby's initial -- J. The background paper is pink and sparkly, and I added glitter glue to the dragonfly wings. It is from Simply Charmed. I really love the way this frame turned out. Their house needs pink, glittery cuteness after all those boys.

I kept the theme going on the card. I used the same dragonfly, but cut the flowers and background mat from Create a Critter. I added ribbon and pearls, and that was it. I love the soft, pastel colors -- perfect for a new baby.

I stamped my sentiment inside.
