New Baby Card for Twins

Hi everyone,  Hope you've had a good week and have something fun planned for the weekend.
We're off to a wedding tomorrow and I'm so looking forward to a party.
 It's been ages since we took a spin around the dance floor...hope we still remember how.
Weather looks like it might co-operate in the afternoon...keeping fingers crossed. 

Today starts a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts and the theme is Birthday or New Baby card.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is

  I needed to make a baby card for the principal at my granddaughters dance school....she gave birth to twin boys and they are absolutely gorgeous.  I'm happy she liked the card and has given it a prominent place in the babies room.

Once again I used my Graphic 45 papers from the Lullaby collection.  I also used the core-dinations matching cardstock and distressed the edges.  Love it when papers match.  The base is SU very vanilla, cut using SB Grand Labels One die.  The inner layer was hand cut.  SU Radiant Rectangles used for the sentiment panel, created in Word.

I would like to enter the the following challenges:
Creative Craft Challenges2 #19 - Use Ribbon
Make it Monday #158
City Crafter Challenge #177 - Colour

Thank you so much for stopping by. I do read all your lovely comments.  They are so much appreciated and help motivate me when I need it.
