Monday with Melis Challenge #1

Hello! I had fun participating in the Monday with Melis (Melissa Phillips on the Papertrey Team) today. Her challenge was to create a card with a birthday theme, using a heart, a background stamp, scallops, and buttons. I seem to be in the baby card mode lately, with a little 7 month granddaughter and another grandchild on the way, so I created this card for a child's birth-day - as a congratulations card for the new parents. I used the Background Basics Twinkle set on the top half of the card, the heart border die and Aqua Mist felt, antique buttons from my stash, and the scalloped border dies (small and medium) with felt for the rosettes. I also used the Filigree border die, the Sending you die, Inside Out Baby sentiments stamp set, PTI Aqua Mist cardstock, Versacolor "Celadon" ink, and some lace on this card. I had to split the sentiment line "The Greatest of Gifts" into two lines by selective inking in order to get it to fit on the Sending You die. Hope you enjoy!
