Baby M is Coming

My sister-in-law is having a baby girl soon, and her baby shower is this weekend. I made a picture frame with her daughter's initial and a matching card.

I used Simply Charmed for the baby and cut the background mat from Formal Occasion. I added ribbon and put glitter glue on the carriage. I also added pearls to the wheels. I found those pearls in the $1 at Michaels, and I've had them for years. I also put the carriage on foam tape for dimension.

Inside the card I added another mat and a sentiment.

I also made a frame for one of her gifts. I've made these before, and they always get a great reaction.

The frame is black, so it's hard to see, especially since I took the pictures really late at night. I used Alphalicious for the letters and added ribbon to the frame. The baby shower theme and baby's room is ballet, so I added ballet slippers to the letter. I think they are from The Paper Studio.

I hope my sister-in-law likes her gifts.
