Baby Shower

I made this card for a baby shower for a friend from church. 

I decided to make this card with the little baby sleeping on the cloud.  I cut her bow and onsie in pink, which meant that pink on the background might have been too much.  I decided that light purple was just right for the patterned paper and the strip that I put the stamp on.  I used Lawn Fawn stamps (Jessie's ABCs) to stamp the sentiment.  Her nose cut too small, so I just outlined it with a clear gel pen.

A tip: When I cut the girl from Baby Steps, I wanted the picture to almost fill the card.  I cut the main image at 4 inches to start with, and it made the baby 4 inches!  I forgot that the size you set goes with the main image, and since in this case the baby is the main image and the moon doesn't show up until Layer 2, it goes by how big the baby is.  I ended up switching to cutting it at about 2 inches and it fit on the card perfectly.
