lifts you up when you need it the most.
She fills me with joy and peace each time we get together.

Wink of stella!
Another close up! I used three different circle dies and metallic thread for a little bit of sparkle.
The envelope needed a bit of decorating too, so I used the embossing folder on the flap. 
Added some pink metallic washi tape (from AC Moore - Spring 2017 collection). 
And an old footprint stamp using SU blushing bride pink ink. 

A birds-eye view of the envelope.
I've own the footprint stamp and the It's a girl stamp for about 18 years now :) 
So I honestly don't remember where I got them.
The detail that the embossing folder gave the envelope was gorgeous!

One last look at the baby card & envelope combo!

My friend S. loved the card!!!
Baby T. is doing well!
Welcome Baby T!

I hope you all liked this card combo as well!
