Baby Shower Card

I attended a surprise baby shower Monday night for the Membership Specialist of our local Girl Scout Council. With this being her second child, and second boy at that, she doesn't need many things. So diapers and wipes it was! A new mom can never have enough diapers and wipes. My main type of paper crafting is scrapbook LOs. I went out of my comfort zone and created this sweet card to go along with the gift. I followed a sketch found at  ABC Challenges. I cut the teddy bear (and shift) at 3" using Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge. The cardstock came out of my scrap folder. And the patterned paper is from DCWV The Stack 6. I also inked the bear with CTMH Chocolate ink. I recently got into inking, so it's not awesome. But I'm pleased :)

Here is my finished card:
