FMS119.. Hello Baby

Happy Friday!

I squeezed some craft time this week and created a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  I know I will be using this sketch down the road:

My card:

The card base is Whisper White, topped off with Lucky Limeade card stock. The patterned paper is from my stash.  A knitted baby sweater takes center stage.  I inserted toothpicks to simulate knitting needles.  The circles were die-cut using the Standard Circles Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  For the final touch, I adhered 3 pearls in the bottom right-hand corner.  This was certainly a fun card to put together!
