Retro Cottage Roses Recipe...


I found the perfect sentiment to play along with this weeks Catered Crop Sentiment-al Challenge and City Crafter Cottage Roses & Gingham Challenge, from Practicing Creativity:
ten tiny fingers, ten tiny toes
she's cute as a button,
and sweet as a rose.
...and so a baby card began, with papers from Authentique, and the "Hello Sweet Baby" sentiment, teddy and button heart from WPlus9, matched with this weeks versatile Retro Sketch, and Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle.  

I always find I stamp my baby cards in brown ink rather than black - it seems more suited to the softness of baby cards - how about you?
