Miracle in Progress

Hi everyone! Yes, I have a card to share today...shocking that I actually made another card, huh? I know! There's a sweet story behind this card, so I put extra love into this one!

My precious friend and co-worker and her husband have been wanting a baby for many years, and after a long struggle, they are finally expecting a little miracle from Heaven!

I ordered this stamp set, Baby Bump by My Favorite Things, just to make her cards with. I used a Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit for my card supplies. The layout is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge 97...loved this sketch! It's so versatile because I made it work for a square card.

I started by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored it with Copic markers and paper-pieced her blouse and shopping bags. I stitched around all of the edges of my patterned paper and added double ribbons. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the patterned paper and finished this card off with some pearls in each corner.

The couple finds out the sex of the baby next week, and I can't wait to find out so that I can start shopping for them!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day! :)
