Grapey Baby Blessing

This is a framed card project for a friend of mine who's expecting her first little girl! The layout is this week's CPS sketch, the colors match Stampin For the Weekend's first challenge of purple and yellow (though late, forgot the time difference:/). I included the cute ribbon frame from this week's Next Level challenge... and their handmade prima's from last week! Cindy's Blog over at CPCM had a cute challenge (CPCM-FOF09), to identify her two themes and make a card... well she posted the themes over at the gallery- veggies and fruits! (initially my guess was circles and foods that grow on trees/vines) Anyways, note the grapes on the frame, and the close up photo where you can see the stem inking and curly vines! :)

Materials- Paper: Me & My Big Idea (background), my stash, Ribbon: all in the cards inc, Stamp: stampcraft, Inks: Zig, stampcraft, Martha Stewart, Frame: Michaels, Paint: Craft Smart, Gems: Marcella by K&Co, Buttons: Dress It Up, Floss: DMC
