Baby Shower Card and Gift for Baby Emma!

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I would like to share a baby-shower card and nameframe gift for a dear friend who is expecting a little girl next month.  In order to match the colors of the nursery, I had to dig into my retired stash of Stampin Up designer paper....I'm not sure what the name is...sorry!  The white picket fence was cut with the "Fence Die" by Our Daily Bread designs.  The "Nested Bird" and "Jasmine Frame" are die cuts by Memory Box. The scripture verse, which I thought was perfect for a baby card, is from Our Daily Bread designs "Scripture Series 2".


I will be submitting this card to the following challenges:
Splitcoast Friday Free4All: Paper Piercing...yay, my fave embellishment!;
Dutch Dare: Summer Fun;
Paper Play: Use A Die;
Paper Playtime: Anything Goes & a sentiment;
Pile It On: Let's Get Outdoors;
CAS-usual Fridays: Pretty In Pink.



This is the matching nameframe which will hang in Emma's nursery.  I used the same "Fence Die", along with the "Spring Border" die by Memory Box.  The border was cut out twice with the designer paper, for the greenery layer, then I also cut out a pink and yellow layer, snipped the flower blossoms, and glued them over the green layer....this wasn't difficult, but took a little while!  Since this frame depth did not have enough space for chipboard or popped up elements, I traced some chipboard letters onto the designer paper, then cut them out, sponged the edges, then adhered them directly to the main panel.

I will be submitting this frame for the following challenges:
Splitcoast Friday Free4All: Paper Piercing;
Dutch Dare: Summer Fun;
Papertake Weekly: Bingo: Punches, Glitter, and Blooms;
Crafty Cardmakers: No cards, tags, or ATC's;
Fab n Funky: Polka Dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a very blessed weekend!!!
