Welcome Baby

We want to thank all of you who have participated in the recent My Grafico challenge. Winners are announced and can be found HERE.  This week our challenge is Baby Shower.
We were given the following images to use in our project.
I don't happen to know of anyone, at the moment, who is expecting. However,I know that Mom's To Be always can use a gift card. This a gift card for a free night out. It could be used now before the baby comes or after for a quiet night out for just the couple. The gift card holder is a mini pizza box. I fashioned the mini box from CTMH cardstock then covered it with CTMH DP. The image was cut with a Spellbinders die then distressed with lilac ink. The ovals were colored lilac with copic markers then dusted with fine glitter.  I also distressed the edges of the delightful poem too.

DP & Cardstock: Close To My Heart
Ribbon: Michael's
Die Cut: Spellbinders
Colored ovals on spellbinder: Copic markers dusted with Martha Stewart fine glitter
Poem: Karl and Joanna Fuchs
Ink: CTMH-lavender
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Mini Pizza Box Template: Score Pal Site
