I am trying to make a card to demo at a party tomorrow night but I think it needs something else. I used the kissing technique with the Just Jeans background that was discovered by someone here. It doesn't show up in the scan very well. I think the problem is that I just don't care for this set.

This is adorable! Buttons are a great idea! What about Crystal effects on the baby buggy? Would that look odd? I was thinking it might give it a little more dimension?
I also wondered how the "baby" might look if stamped in the darker pink color (regal rose?) of the base card? When I think of babies, I tend to think of soft pastels. That would then make the pram stand out more. Just a thought.

The crooked "baby" is bothering me - either make it more topsy-turvy or make it straight. You could demo at your party how to "fix" things by stamping "baby" on a coordinating cardstock and covering the "baby" already there. BTW, if you like it that way, then just ignore this type A person. :)
You could emboss the pram?
I LOVE the background and the bow is perfect! I like that set and think that what you have is great minus the "baby." :) (Seriously, don't take what I write personally, ESPECIALLY if you like it like that.)

Thanks for all the input. I did think of the buttons but I don't have enough of the soft subtles. The hostess is expecting 22 people! As far as the crooked baby, I didn't mean for it to be crooked, I just wanted some input so I loaded it right away. BTW I am not mad about the crooked comment I hate it that way too and it bugs me as well!
