I'm helping celebrate the birth of Marilynn's (APandi) long awaited and much loved twin grandbabies with this vintage card. I used MFT's Onesie Die-namic and some Graphic 45 dp, stitching between the different patterns - aiming for the effect of a baby blanket. All edges have been sponged with Distress ink

Bridget, this is a labor of love for Theo and Sopris!! I would love to find a polka dotted onesie in the real world! The blanket you have created is a treasure, and adorable!!
Here's a factoid that only my Mom and I know, my Grandma made a baby quilt for me that had kitties all over it, I couldn't say kitty, but said kibby cover. I sure wish I still had it. I wore that quilt to the threads!

Thank you so much for taking time to make a card for Andrea and Erik. They are going to be so surprised when the mail starts arriving. I am sure your creation will be one of their favorites with your eye for detail and talent for mixing patterns.

I spotted this last night, but we were listening to a quiz on the radio so I didn't get to leave a comment. What vintage loveliness - the paper reminds me so much of the illustrations in the copy we had of The Water Babies. You've combined the pink and blue so wonderfully.
