Paper Dolls Challenge #37

I'm back! Sorry I've been MIA for awhile, but I have a pretty good excuse. See photos new nephew Liam!

He was simply adorable. Check out that little knitted bear hat he's wearing, that was made by yours truly :) He is a month old now, I can't believe it! It was a quick trip down, just four days, but totally worth it!

Now onto some business. Here is my card that I created for Suzanne's challenge at the Papertrey Paperdolls blog. She challenged us to use patterned paper for the whole card except the base.

As you can see, I ran out of room for the "ks" so used "x" LOL. I figured that is the texting "thanx" so it will work too.

The flowers were given to me by my Big Sis in the Divine Secret Siblings group at Splitcoast Stampers. The button in the middle is from SU.

I wanted to try something new with the "bow" and have it come off the side and not be so traditional. The best part is that the ribbon is actually from an Ann Taylor Loft bag that my coworker gave me some clothes in the other day! The ribbon handles were so nice I just took them right off before throwing out the bag :)

This card was fun to make, thanks for the challenge, Suzanne! The stamps are from the PTI alphablocks set, the Old Olive Cardstock base from SU and all the patterned paper is from K & Company. Try this challenge out yourself, here.
