Be sure to enter at Cut It Up Challenge! and be sure to check out our challenge rules as well.  You could win this beautiful prize...

Since my daughter is due ANY DAY and my best friend is also due about 1 week later, I decided to stick with a baby theme.  My stash of baby cards is slowly dwindling down and I wanted to make a few announcement cards to send out when our little girl arrives!

Elegant Edges Cartridge by Provocraft ( Scallop 1 p. 23 Oblong Shift at 4")
Mat embossed with Cuttlebug Musical Flourish embossing folder
White mat chalked with Pink or Blue chalk
Bakers Twine
Green and Blue Buttons (4 each card)
