Viva la Verve Baby Congrats

Hello! I had a chance to play with last week's Viva la Verve sketch! This is my card for the week 3 challenge (all details here in the Verve Splitcoast forum).

I needed a baby card for sweet friends of ours who are having their first baby, so I pulled out one of the new Verve releases, To the Moon. I stamped the little frame on my tilted panel and popped the little bear onto it. Since they are expecting a girl, I stamped the bow from one of the sweet bunnies in Practically Perfect (this set is currently on sale through 1/31!), colored and cut it out, then I added it to the teddy bear. I added some flatback pink rhinestones (from Pizzazz Aplenty) to the bow, picture hanger and to the top of my card.

My layout is based upon Tosh's fabulous sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
