"Baby Girl" Card

Good Afternoon,
Last night, I was thinking of a card to make for my girlfriend at work who just told me about her having a baby girl! OMGosh...she totally hid it for like almost 7 months! So NOT fair....i couldnt even tell till now! So another girlfriend and I want to have a baby shower for her...she is very private and only wants a few close people there...so I wasn't sure if I should make these cards for baby shower invitations or just give this one to her with a gift? The saying in the fron can go both ways I think? My daughter and I are tickled pink for her!
So here is how I made this 6x6 card in about an hour....I first cut a 12x12 in half to make the 6x6 card. Then I cut a 5 1/2 square in pink cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4 square in white and embossed it with swiss dots. I used some old Martha Stewart papers in baby pink cut 2 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/4 for the bottom. I have some super small doilies and I used one under the bottom of flowers. Using my cricut and spellbinders I cut the scalloped ovals and all the leaves. The leaves I used watermark for the dots. The flowers are prima and I added pink satin ribbon and pearls throughout....
Here is the side angle...
Here is a close up of the wording on the front of the card....I used two different fonts for this card to make it pop a bit.
Thanks for stopping by!
