Sweet Girl

My card today started with this cute little outfit I bought for a neighbor who had a baby girl this weekend.  I loved the neat pattern and that sweet giraffe and label underneath.  The pattern reminded me so much of PTI's quatrefoil cover plate.  I don't have that die, but luckily my friend Joyce of Cards by the Sea sent me a few quite a while ago and I still had one in the right color, so I put that die cut right to work.
Here's my card:

The giraffe is from PTI's Sweet Baby and I used Polka Dot Basics II to stamp the polka dot pattern.  I don't have the stamp set, just the dies, so I used a pen to make a black outline to make it look more like the giraffe on the baby outfit.  The little tag on the outfit says "sweet girl" and Pti's Night, Night Moon has the exact words and in almost the exact font, so I think I got pretty close to the look of the outfit.  I finished the inside of the card with another giraffe and sentiment from Baby Button Bits.

Here they are together, what do you think?

What do I think? It's absolutely adorable. One of your cutest. Did you pick the outfit because it would make a great card? I love how you were able to make the card look so much like the outfit--this is one for the scrapbook, for sure.

Cathy, just too cute! How fun to make a card to match that adorable little sleeper. Just so clever and that die is perfect. Love how you used the giraffe die and not the stamp, you would never know. And your sentiment even matches the one on the sleeper to the tee, just too sweet!
