Baby Shower!

My friend Karen is about to have twin babies so I wanted to make her a baby card. I don't get to make many baby cards so I had fun doing this one! I wanted to make a card with a washing line with baby clothes on it. My friend is having a boy and a girl so I made little girl clothes and little boy clothes! I cut my clothes out on my Cricut using 'everday paper dolls' and 'paper doll dress up' Cricut cartridges and then I inked the edges with 'tea dye' distress ink. I found a stash of tiny little buttons which I purchased ages ago from a craft show so I glued them onto the clothes; how cute are they? I also found a cute little picket fence and tiny little pegs that I had not used yet either so I finally got to use them on this card. It's amazing the goodies you find when you clean up your craft room! My flowers and tiny leaves are from Hooked On Craft and are glittered with stickles.
Hope you like my card!
