A Baby Card for a Special Friend

My friend Lydia is pregnant with her fourth!  Her baby shower was last weekend but I didn't get to attend as I was out of town on an annual "shopping" trip with three friends (I hope to blog about that soon). 

Anyhoo, I wanted to post the card that I made for Lydia.  I used gender-neutral colors since the baby's sex is not known.  I pulled out some papers from two of my favorite paper companies, Graphic 45 and Webster's Pages, and here is what I came up with..........

A very simple (but elegant!) card. 
Supplies used:
yellow cardstock and ribbon - Stampin' Up (Summer Starfruit)
The card size is 5" x 5".  The Graphic 45 paper was attached using foam dimensionals and the bow was attached using (another of my faves) Glue Dots!
I am also submitting this card for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #56 - God's Goodness.  One of the ways that God's goodness is manifested is through the giving of physical life.  When we look at newborn babies, our first thought is "how sweet"; however, beause of sin, that newborn is at enmity with God and will continue to be as he/she grows unless God opens their spiritual eyes and heart to the Truth. 
"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good."  - Psalm 107:1

  2. Your card is very elegant - and I happen to LOVE simplicity (even though I don't do it well myself). LOL Thanks so much for playing along with us at Word Art Wednesday - we LOVE seeing your sweet art shared in our challenges.
