Let the cute begin...

My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby in January and have recently shared the news with us. I am so pleased for them, it is very exciting! We are all soooooo ready for another bub in the family — my mum is beside herself with joy!
I made this card to congratulate them on their wonderful news, and sent it off today along with a couple of little baby gifts.
Stamps: Big on Spring
Card:
Whisper White, Night of Navy
Paper: Certainly Celery DSP
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, 1/8" White Taffeta Ribbon

I wasn't a huge fan of the polka dot look to begin with, but I've since seen the potential. I think pale blue or pink baby cards look so adorable with polka dots!

We also received the news last night that a friend has just given birth to a baby girl! I thought it would give me the opportunity to make a polka dot card in pink, but my daughter has claimed the card making privilege, since she is more closely connected with the family. I might make one anyway, to stash for another occasion ;)
