Swell News...

Ok...so I just found out that two of my cousins are pregnant, well, I knew about one of them but I just found out what she is having, so I wanted to make them up a card to tell them both congrats! Its hard to tell, but I embossed the polka dots with clear embossing powder, I love embossing, I think it just adds so much more to your project. :)
Also, I can't decide which card I like better, I'm thinking I really like the green, I don't know the pink one just feels like it needs something. Any thoughts?

Both cards are SUPER cute!! I was so mad when this stamp set retired. They should bring it back, or at least something like it.

Very cute! I really like both cards! The green does really "pop" but pink and brown is a classic, an all-time favorite!
