So, for my card I decided to use the new BasiGrey Olivia 6x6 paper pad and I teamed it up with this adorable My Favorite Things Who's that Girl stamp set called Baby Bump. I paper pieced the WTG's clothes and shopping bags with BG Olivia papers and coloured in her skin and background with my Copics. I added some cotton trim and ribbon from my stash and used this fabulous new MFT Open Scallop Di-namics border die. The sentiment is just one of the many cute sentiments in the Baby Bump set and I stamped it on a Nestie tag. I had a little mishap with this image...these WTG images have a black border around them and when I trimmed this image down I accidentally cut a part of it off on one side. Well, instead of throwing out the image and starting all over. I just went around the image with the chisel top of my Permapaque Opaque Marker and saved the image from the trash bin,smile! So, to finish off the card, I added a few Prima flowers but not too many and just a touch of Pink bling...I think this card is my version of a Clean and Simple card,smile.

and here is the inside...I used one of the great sentiments in the MFT Clearly sentimental About Babies set and stamped it on paper cut out with the Di-namics Framed Greeting die then stamped "Congratulations" from the Baby Bump set on the QuicKutz tag.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you can join the challenge and I hope you enter the BG DT Call too!
Happy stampin'!
Hugs,
