Baby Shower

Hi all,  sorry I ahve been MIA lately.  No excuse really, just lacking in motivation.  I have a few things to catch up on, so hopefully I will get everything done by Tuessay, because we are off to Sydney for a week to play tourist.  I lived in Sydney for 18 years, but haven't been back with the boys and we are really looking forward to seeing the sights as a family.

Here is a card I was asked to make for a friend.  I have used my rikrak die for the background.

Stamps:  Stampin Bella, Scattered showers (PTI), Inside & out: Baby, Polka dot basics (PTI)
Card:  Passion pink, pixie pink, pink pirouette and whisper white
Ink:  Pixie pink, stazon
Accessories:  Rasberry fizz twill, vintage button, rik rak die (PTI), nestabilities - scallop rectangle, twine
