Perfect Sentiments Challenge 06: Stitch It Baby!

Hey Everyone...welcome back for another awesome challenge at The Perfect Sentiments Challenge Blog.

This weeks challenge was to create a card with a baby themed's the need to use some form of stitching...whether it be faux, hand-stitching, machine stitching. This was a fun challenge that not only fulfilled my sample for this week but also took care of a greeting card I needed to make for some friends who just had a baby recently...perfect!

We have another great sponsor for this weeks challenge...Cindy over at Cindy Coutts Designs is offering a fantastic prize. It's a mini Stampin' Up set called Something For Christmas. Be sure to head on over to her website and tell her The Perfect Sentiment sent you : )

Now on to my interpretation of this weeks challenge.....

I got this idea to twist some purple and green ribbon I had to put on the side of the card. The shimmery purple cardstock you see as the mat base is actually some leftover paper from my wedding invitations 2 years ago. 
I've had this purple/green stitched pocket for awhile now and I based the design/color scheme for this card from that. I bought the purple baby tag from my crop last month in Gold Beach..don't remember the name of the company though. I added the small pink baby sentiment just for another color. 
I used more of the same ribbon to carry the theme from the front to the inside.
One final photo of my purple Welcome Home Sweet Baby card : )

And now for some additional inspiration from my fellow DT members....
