ppd 40/41: baby thanks

Okay, I'm going to double dip for challenges, being busy with life and such.  I'm working backwards through the Paper Doll challenges, with # 41 and # 40: twine and background stamps.  Thanks Deena & Jen, both fun ideas!

Just a fun baby boy thank you - made skinny to fit a banner border.  I used Polka Dot Basics I and II on the kraft bits.  Although I've used the Night Night Moon strip as a background stamp, it's a simple strip here.  I kept the twine on the DL, too - button bows in enchanted evening. 
 Coloring those diaper pins is a blast - I love Pine's images!
Do you ever make a card you like and reproduce it?  I'm making eight of these babies :)  That's a lot of Cuttlebug cranking!  Better get to work...

xoxo,

I love how the limitless layers fit in the fillable frame. And the banner edges ....... they work so perfectly together!! Colors are great!!! I try to make 8 different designs for Christmas and then reproduce each 8 times ...... anything after that I buy ....... not everyone will appreciate a handmade card so not everyone gets one :) Beautiful card ~~

This is adorable! I like the look of the FF die behind the starburst circle. I'll have to try that! I love that this card has so many wonderful details, but it's flat enough to mail. Great job!
