Congratulations, it's a Girl

 Hello friends, family and followers and welcome to the new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. The theme for this fortnight is "You Deserve a Hand" use a hand or make a congratulatory card, well as you see by the title I made a Congratulatory card for a friend that just became a Grandma to a sweet little girl. 

Wow did I dig deep into my stash, the patterned paper is from a $$+ store probably 3 or 4 years old, I was surprised I found it quickly and there was still one piece left. Of course I had to use a Happy Hopper baby and I used some wink of stella on the bottle. The crocheted oval was made by a design team member Jessi that passed 4 years ago, I still have a stash as I've been hoarding them. 

Finished the inside of the 5 1/2 inch square card with leftover scraps and a sentiment from Michaels $1.50 bin. 

I am entering this in:
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ~~ Anything Goes./optional animal/bird friends

Thanks for visiting today and have a wonderful week.
