Personalized baby gift

Today I'd like to share with you a shadow frame & a card that I made for a friend of mine who just had a baby.  As you can see from the picture below, the baby came a little early and is a tiny peanut at 3lb 14 oz but she's doing well in the NICU and we are thankful. 

(I had to "blur" out her last name since I don't have permission from her Mama to post that in blogland)

Here's some details:

The card I made using the New Arrival Cricut cartridge. 
The congratulations stamp is from Fiskars.
The papers I used are all The Paper Studio.

The frame is a shadow frame I bought from Michael's. 
For the inside, I used the Cricut Craft Room and laid out the design.
I used the Jasmine Cartridge, Art Nouveau, Beyond Birthdays, Disney Pooh Font Set & New Arrival.

Instead of cutting out all the cuts, I used the Cricut Ink and had it "draw" them on the white cardstock.
Then I colored them in with colored pencils.
I added some flowers and gems and Stickles for the extra touches. 

On the outside of the frame I added some ribbon. To adhere it I used Terrifically Tacky Tape and it stuck on there really well. : )   A few paper flowers and some gems on the outside to finish it off. 

I'm also going to make her some "devotional diapers" that I saw on The Better Mom website and then get this package in the mail. 

Thanks for spending a few minutes with me. 
Hope you'll come back again soon.
