Cute Little Baby

Hello all on this dull gloomy day I thought I would show you a card I made last week for one of Robs work mates and his partner, they had a baby girl last week, so I was busy going through my cd-roms for some inspiration and I came across  Popcorn Bear Platinum,  that I bought from Crafters Companion when it was launched.You know how it is you have so many and forget what you have, well that's my excuse, anyway I found a gorgeous one that was perfect, I actually made 2 cards as I did one for the proud Grandparents too, I will show you that one another time. So here is my card, I just love it.

I would like to enter my card into the Crafters Companion Challenge - Anything Goes.
