Baby you look fabulous

Yesterday I went to a baby shower for my niece, she is 25 weeks pregnant and is having identical twins so I made this card just for her, the twin card will follow later.
I used Nana's nursery baby boy designer paper and colorbox chalk ice jade for the ink. I stamped the image and cut it out with nestabilities oval and oval scallop in co-ordinating colours.

Stamps: Stampin up She's all that
Paper: Nana's nursery baby boy, chocolate chip,blue, white
Other: Button brads,chocolate chip ribbon,MS Punch, colorbox ink, nestabilities.

Lost camera

Hi there,
This is my first post for the month, I have started back at work at the end of January and the days have been really busy. I haven't done much stamping except for my Brother in law's birthday which I made him a gift card. I took the photo and put my camera in a safe place and then forgot where I put it. That was on the 2nd, the 2nd was also the day my daughter came home from Florida, needless to say no stamping done again.
My birthday was last week and I wanted to share some of the card that I received, so I turned the house upside down to find my camera and guess where it was right under the drawer of my stamping desk.
Here is the gift card holder I gave my BIL
The Designer paper used is from Kaiser - on the dot, the image is an old one I had from PSX SK616a, I coloured it in with water colour pencils. You can follow the tutorial for the gift card holder on the Rubber Romance blog The ribbon is from my supplies and the main image was cut out with nestabilities.
