A Day for Daisies baby card

The daughter of a good friend is expecting a baby boy early next month, so I thought I would make a new baby card in blue to celebrate little Travis' upcoming arrival. I had some pearlescent blue cards in my stash, so I started with one of those for my card base.
Next, I imported a digital stamp from A Day for Daisies into my Silhouette Design Studio software and sized it up for an A2 card. I also used a digital sentiment and printed the image and sentiment out before choosing some Spellbinders dies to cut them and mat them. It's really a better idea to choose dies first and size up the images and sentiments to fit in the dies, but sometimes I forget that step! I used Spellbinders Standard Circles Small for the image and Spellbinders Stately Circles for the circle mat made with the safety pin paper. I had a metal bib embellishment in my stash and some blue self-adhesive gems to finish off the front of the card.
For the inside of the card, I cut the sentiment and mat with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles. I used foam squares to adhere everything on the card except for the self-adhesive gemstones in the lower right corner.
