Sweet Little Princess

Happy Wednesday!
Today is a good day...no Great Day!  My niece has arrived!!

I'm so excited and elated for my sister.  Such a sweet little blessing that came into her life at the perfect moment.  I am thrilled to become an aunt, and I know my sister will be the most amazing mommy in the world.  It's funny...I think back to when we were growing up...she never wanted kids.  Fast forward about 20 years...and this little blessing has arrived.  You never know what the future holds, do you? :)

To welcome this little bundle of pure Joy into the world, I put together a little baby package for the parents and sealed it up with today's card.  I waited to share this until she arrived :)
I used a few Lawn Fawn products on this card because they were just perfect for the occasion and it feels like forever since I played with these adorable sets.  The background flowers and hummingbird are from the Gleeful Gardens set and the cute little bunnies are from the Hello Baby set.

I did some tone on tone stamping for the woodgrain background, and used a stencil for the circle pattern, along with a white and glitter gel pen to make the highlight circles.

I filled this fun shaker card full of sequins and beads.  It's pretty packed...probably too packed...but oh well :)  It's more fun that way.

The sentiment is a combination of a few from the Hello Baby set.  I had to add a few individual S' at the end of princess because the stamp actually only says prince.  But it worked :)

Being so far away from my sister is really hard...and even harder now that there is a little one to snuggle.  But sweet little cards like this help to keep in touch and I can't wait to finally meet my little niece!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Addicted to Stamps #172-Make Your Mark
