Hello Sunshine

Here is my first card made with my new SU stuff! It's from the Cheap Talk set and features some of the new paper and buttons. The branch is made using the Little Leaves sizzlits die and the Big Shot. I love using the top note die for my top layer if I am stamping on Whiper White. The ribbon is tied on a little differently. I meant for it to go behind the top layer and tie at the side after punching out a half small oval. However it caused the top layer to be way off center and didn't look good. But I had already punch through the topnote as well as the other layers, which meant I couldnt just leave off the ribbon without having to do it all over again. So instead the ribbon is tie through the back side of the card.

I am also in the process of making a bunch of baby rompers as a gift to my DIL. Her baby is due on April 2. I am going to give these to her at her shower. She can use them as thank yous or announcememts. The little duck is shiny and smooth from a layer of Crystal Effects.
