A Baby Shower

Good Morning,

Today I would like to share this sweet baby card I made for a shower in a couple of weeks. I love this stork -  just too stink'n cute. I wanted to give it a Shabby Chic look. I colored the stork and babies head and foot with Copic Markers and then paper pieced the scarf, blanket and foot coverings.  I inked the edges of all my paper and for the final touches added lace and bling. Gotta love that bling!

You can purchase the items below in the 7 Kids College Fund Store

Here are a couple of closer views of my card:
