Pregnancy Announcement

As promise, I'm back with my pregnancy announcement card.
This as been requested by my Daughter who's friend is just passed her 12th week into her pregnancy and has now announced to the world. The baby's room will be in creams and beige's. I have a shadow box, in which this card will be placed in to for safe keeping. Just waiting for the paint to dry.
I have used my favourite layout for this card. As I have said before it is great for the scraps of papers you have lying about.
I have not coloured this image at all - it's come from PCCrafters, which I'm afraid is no longer running. The creatable it came from is " Hush Little Baby ".
I have used NEW ARRIVAL papers - Forever Friends.
The ribbon is too Forever Friends.
Gems and flowers are as always Wild Orchid Crafts.
Cheery Lynne - Fanciful Flourish.
This picture isn't perfect I'm afraid - having camera and light problems. It's so dark this end.
Oh - I have to tell you - The Paper Mill  have got a special offer on A4 300gsm card stock.
Its a mega box of 500 sheets for £30.00. Now firstly I wasn't sure if to order it or not, as I've been on sites before where they have claimed its good card stock and when it's arrived, I've been disappointed at the quality of it. We use to have a Paper Mill locally and I was happy with what they sold. So I just went for it - it arrived yesterday and OMG its beautiful thick card. I ordered Monday,so I was also happy with the delivery time too. Get yourself over there as it is a limited time deal.
You won't be able to use your Martha Stewart punches on the card as it's very thick. Now at my nearest craft shop you can pay 49p a single sheet for this thickness, now times that by 500, it'll cost you £245.00. So YES Paper Mill's card is a real bargain.
I'm off now - lots of things to do.
Take Care
