First Birthday Gift and Card

My great niece turned one today. She's the cutest little thing and I love the opportunity to buy her cute little dresses. I found this flowery, summer dress at Target and just had to make a matching card.I searched through my Papertrey flower sets til I found Flower Garden, the perfect set to use. I stamped the images, imitating the flowers on Marlee's new dress for my card and matching envelope.
The ink colors I used were Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, Lavender Moon and Dark Chocolate for the outline. I used glitter on the small flowers for some bling. Sentiment is from Bitty Baby Blessings and is layered on circle punches. Ribbon is Lemon Tart Swiss Dot. And one of my favorite new papers....Papertrey's new Soft Stone cardstock. It is such a great neutral color to add to your collection, I love it!!

Well, it's past bedtime for the girls and they're waiting for me to tuck them in before they go to bed..........in a fort made of piles of blankets and pillows....in the middle of my bedroom floor.....fun times! But I can't even make it to my closet for my jammies. LOL!!

This is absolutely lovely. I love the dress and making a card to match was awesome. I just recently realized that PTI had soft stone paper. I don't knwo how I missed that. I guess I better put some in my cart after the next release. TFS!!!

Oh Mish, this is sensational! I can't believe how well you matched the card to that precious dress. This will be a gift for your great niece's mother to remember. You're a good egg.

Hi Michelle,

Love your blog! I clicked on your link and my daughter said", Hey, that's like my dress!" She wore it for Easter and I too love the colors. We may just have to pop over to PTI and order the stamp set. Thanks for the awesome ideas and inspirations.
