Pals Paper Arts Challenge #2

This is my take on this weeks PPA challenge. I have a new great niece, her name is Anna Pearl after her two great great grandmothers. She is a beautiful little girl born last Tuesday morning right before convention. That has to be lucky right there!
I used Pretty in Pink cardstock and embossed it with the new embossing folder from Stampin' Up! "Finial Press". I've changed the card base and turned it on it's side. In the picture you can't see the scallops on the edges but they are there under the ribbon.
On that first layer I've added whisper white organza ribbon that I loosely gathered with needle and thread, attached it with sticky strip, trimmed and then added another layer of Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon. To the taffeta ribbon I've added Soft Subtle Pretty in Pink Brads and buttons from the Button Latte group. Each button is tied with linen thread and attached with Mini Glue Dots. For my second layer I've added pink polka dots from the DS paper "Tea Party". I've scalloped the side along with whisper white card stock for a third layer. I've used the single stamp from Stampin' Ups! "Beautiful Baby", stamped it in the new In Color Soft Suede. I sponged the edges of these two layers. To finish the card I added a bow from the Pretty In Pink taffeta ribbon and a little creeper from the stamp set "Big On Spring". To this I added a little pink brad and I hung it on a rhinestone brad from the Circle Fire group to give it just a touch of bling. My card is a little different this time because I didn't want to cover up a lot of the embossing so I used that as one of my layers. I hope you like it!
