Shabby Baby Card

Hi blog friends,
I combined a few challenges to make this cute baby card. I don't have any left in my stash so I thought I'd remedy that while playing with some pretty paper and notions! I was dying to get back to my craft room after a short vacation.
The Kraft Journal's challenge this week is Rock a Bye Baby. I have been wanting to cut this adorable baby carriage from the Cricut Heritage cartridge so I did just that, layering MME "Lost and Found" DS paper over Kraft. I used this week's Deconstructed Sketch 59 and the lovely "Shabby Tea Room 122 Elegance & Lace" inspiration colors of Kraft, White/Cream, Pink and Lace. I had this last bit of lace to add to the card. I don't know where I got it, maybe Joanne's.
I am also playing in There She Goes challenge this week which is to include sewing, real or faux. I zigzag stitched around the outside of the layered panel. That adds to the shabby-ness as well as the muted colors, twine and pearls. This week's Ribbon Carousel challenge is Buttons and Bows. I think I should have used a color other than black for the sentiment. Lesson learned.
Thanks for visiting today, stay tuned for another card this week!
Hugs, Kim
