Welcome Baby BBTB2 Challenge

Hello everyone!  I spent a lovely weekend at Lake Murray getting my Scrapping on, with a lovely group of friends.  I cannot wait to share the projects I created on my blog later this month.  I felt like we all accomplished so much... whether in organization, scrapping, or just relaxing.   My teacher family and and friends are back to work today after a lovely spring break.  For two of my teacher friends the final days of spring break were spent at Lake Murray!

Today is Monday and that means it is time for another Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge!  My delightful design team sister, Caroline, from Card Creations By Caroline, selected this weeks challenge cut - a theme - Welcome Baby.

I used two Cricut cartridges to create my baby girl card - Baby Steps and Lacey Labels.  I used a modified version of the girl onesey cut from Baby Steps and the flowers from Lacey Labels.  I began with the basic girly onesey cut and I added 1/4 inch circles welded side by side along the sleeve and leg openings to make the lacey edging.  I then copied my modified onesey and welded two copies together at the shoulders to create the base card, which I cut with white cardstock.  I cut one individual ruffle edged onesey in white to go under the top layer.

I used the shift layer of the onesey cut and cut it in pink herringbone cardstock to use as the top layer.  I glued the top layer to the single white layer and using pop dots, attached the "outfit" to the base card.

I cut the tulip stems from the Baby Steps cartridge, but I cut off the tulips.  The tulips were replace with daisy flowers from the Lacey Labels cartridge.  I cut six flowers total and shaped them using a stylus and foam mat.  I then glued the flowers onto the onesey and added button centers.

The lovely card is actually for my friend Beth's (MFB) soon to arrive new granddaughter, Meg.  Meg is due to arrive in a few weeks and I wanted to be ready to welcome her.   I used the font on Baby Steps to cut Meg's name. 
I added a lace collar to Meg's card and I used my favorite micro tipped pen to add doodles to the ruffle trim and to the flower stems.  I finished the card by adding two eyelets to the "snap" area on the onesey.

My baby Meg card is just one idea on making a Welcome Baby card.  For more inspiration and fabulous ideas please head over to the Bitten by the Bug 2 team blog and check out the fabulous projects my design team sisters have added.   And remember we love it when you join us in the weekly challenge.  Be sure to read the challenge rules in our sidebar before linking to the challenge.

Thank you for stopping by today and checking out Meg's card.  I will be back tomorrow with another new project!
