Baby Girl: Hanging Out!!

One of my son's friends just had a little baby girl last month and I wanted
to make a card using Hanging Out. I used the same layout as this one
that I made for a friend's baby boy. All that was needed was some
changes in colour, paper and patterns.

I started by making my own patterned paper with Background Basics: Medallion, Blush and Spring Moss inks. This colour scheme was repeated in the clothes hanging from the clothes line. To create a pattern on the dress, I used the floral stamp from Bitty Background Basics.

The family owns a little white, black and brown Jack Russell terrier, so I added the dog from Tiny Treats: Valentine. It was stamped, coloured and fussy cut and then added to the card panel. The grass and flowers are both from the Garden Variety stamp set.

The inside of the card was stamped with the sentiment from the Hanging Out set and the little girl is an image from Quilter's Sampler. I repeated the medallion images as a border along the bottom of the white panel.

A matching envelope:
Clothesline (Waltzingmouse Stamps: Bitty Banners)   Lettering (Stampin'Up: Rough Type) 
Grass & Flowers (Garden Variety)     Sentiment & Clothes pins (Hanging Out)
