Scraps Card #20 Baby Card

Did you think I disappeared?  The pregnancy is slowly going and I've lost weight instead of gaining.  But I finally had some energy tonight to make a new card for my scraps series!  11 to go....slowly their going but my pile of scraps is getting smaller and smaller!
For this card I got some inspiration from Momo.  If you haven't checked out Made by Momo you really should. She has some very simple but gorgeous cards!  I love her work.
I chose a baby theme as a friend of mine is having a C-section on Friday and I needed to make her a card, plus 7 of my co-workers/people I know are expecting.  Must be a small baby bomb.
The card base measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" the long way and is the baby blue from the Trucks & Trains cardstock by Recollections.  The mat is cut from brown cardstock scraps and is cut at 5 1/4" x 4" and the patterned paper is also cut from my stash of scraps and is cut at 5" x 3 3/4".  I only had enough to make this size of patterned paper mat so the other mat is 2 1/4" x 4".  I also used a baby blue strip of ribbon on this card.
The giraffe is cut from the Create a Critter cartridge (my favorite cartridge) on p. 48 and is cut at 4 1/2".  I used the giraffe in brown, layer 1 in a dark yellow and layer 2 in an ecru.
On one card I used hemp string that I got in a pack at Walmart.  I paid about $3 for the whole pack and there is enough there to do many cards.  The other card, I used a baby blue ribbon.
The sentiment on the outside and inside are stamped using Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up ink and both sentiments come from the Occasional Quotes Stampin' Up set.
I added some baby blue and brown buttons to give those "empty" spaces a boost.
