So Sweet Baby

This ended up being a really cute baby card. I am hoping my friend is having a girl so I made it kinda girly-squirrel-ly. :) I was also able to get a really great sketch from Jitterbuggin' and for me it all comes together when I have a great sketch to start with!
The color palette came from the ColourQ blogsite. I made this squirrel to hold a baby bottle instead of a nut and added a flower and a bow to her hair(?). I used some silly border stamps from Recollections (the squiggle stitch border and the clouds border that I made into a background). I used a Tim Holtz Alterations folder (swirls). I also did a little inking around the edges and added some bling-bling on the flowers.
Cartridges used: Give a Hoot (for squirrel and flowers) and Doodlecharms (for bottle). Teardrop for sentiment.
