Lovin' This $1 Stamp - Preggo Card for a Friend

This was a different sketch for me, which I found to be a challenge because I made quite a mess of this card as I was creating it. Once I was finished all of the individuals elements for this card I realized that I wanted to mat the embossed background to a piece of celery cardstock. I had already cut and punched the notches for the original dimensions, so I had to then keep wacking it down until everything fit correctly again. (Card base, mat, embossed BG, etc.)

I LOVE using Primas but had noticed after putting a brad through the large pink flower that it looked...well...a bit odd, so I pulled out a strip of stitched flowers that I had picked up a long time ago at the local fabric store. It's nice to have pieces tucked away when you need them. ;) I simply cut of of the flowers off of the ribbon and centered it with the brad to the original flower.

I hope my friend enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
