Polka Doodles #14: Use A Die

Hello friends! It's inspiration week over at the Polka Doodles Blog and we are continuing our fortnightly challenge theme of "Use a Die". There's still time for you to to play along.

I made a card for a friend who is expecting a baby girl. Here's a sweet and simple card made with papers from my all time favourite indispensable CD for patterned papers - Sugar Birdies.

The pre-coloured digi and sentiment are from the Fredericka Mini Collection. I'm using X-Cut heart dies in various sizes to cut and frame as well as a few sequins from the Doodlebug Cupcake collection and sheer ribbon for a soft and delicate finish.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment. And the image is soooo lovely. Check out the precious little baby-grow.
