Baby Girl - MPS challenge

My husband and I live in a condo in San Francisco. Our building manager, Candace, is on leave and I just found out that she had her baby girl yesterday morning. I don't even have the details or what her name is yet! Anyway, I thought this would be a fun card to make for the My Pink Stamper challenge of Brown, Pink, Green, and Orange.

Now, these would not have been the colors that I would have put together on a card, but I think they ended up pretty cute. I did use beige for the baby's head. But I think I will be forgiven for that. In hindsight, I wish I would have used the same paper that I used for the envelope for the baby carriage. But alas, Now I know for next time.

The carriage card and envelope are from Wild Cartridge™. The baby body, head, and bunny are from Everyday Paper Dolls™.

I welded the baby body and head to the card base with my Gypsy™ as I didn't want all the colors showing on the inside of the card. Then I re-cut the baby's head and pasted it on top. The bow is my orange - it more of a coral, but it's the orange I wanted to use. I used a black pen to ink in some eyes, definition lines, etc. and I cut the the green scallop by hand (you can totally tell!). My scissors are kitchen scissors so they are huge! haha. Add another thing on the craft list!

I stamped the sentiment with Hero Arts™ CL272 stamps.

Now, I just have to take it to the HOA office so they can send it off to Candace! I can't wait to see her new baby girl!
