Hello baby!

Hello and welcome of a second night of Gina K. Previews. I hope you are enjoying the blog hop and the fabulous creations of the DT. Tonight I am showcasing a wonderful set "Hip to be square" designed by Melanie Muenchinger. This set has wonderful stamps and great coordinated sentiments.
Tonight I decided to create a baby card. I stamped the big square from this set in 2 different DP and once in Pink CS, then cut them out and sponged the borders (DP squares), after that I adhered to the Pink CS and zig zag stitched the borders. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom corner and adhered some Pink Rhinestones. Then I stamped the baby face and adhered it onto a scallop circle (it was sponged too).
I sponged all the borders of the card and attached some White Satin Ribbon. Easy peasy and cute baby girl card.
