My daughter and son-in-law posted their exciting news on Facebook tonight; so, I’m now free to tell the world, that they’re expecting their first baby and our first grandbaby. I couldn’t be happier for them; I know they’re going to be awesome parents! As soon as they posted their announcement, I scooted down to my studio and designed this card using this week’s Retrosketches sketch. I stamped the bear, then masked over him while I stamped the Gorgeous Grunge background. The ribbon border was a bit heavier than I wanted, so I simply trimmed it in half and it felt “just right.” An In Color Boutique embellishment seemed to be the perfect finishing touch!
