Welcome Baby

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Good Morning Everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week so far! Can you believe it is mid May already?  It has been pretty cool here so far this spring...we have only been in the 50's :( Really wanting some of that warm 90 degree weather that some of you are having, lol! 
I have a quick little baby card to share with you using an adorable cut file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons called Safari Love that I cut on my Silhouette.
Lisa is also having a fun challenge going on and thought I would jump in a play along in the girly challenge since I am in need of a girl baby card :) Yeah!
I started with a red card base and then a base layer of white. I followed with a panel cut at 4 1/4 x 4 1/2 which I embossed with the SU Petals of Plenty folder for dimension. The frame is a Spellbinders Floral Oval which I adhered in place and added some fun gems to.
I popped this adorable little giraffe to the center with foam tape and added a little doodling. The sentiment in the center of the balloon is My Craft Spot's Bundle of Joy stamp set. The sentiment along the bottom is stamped from the Banner Sentiment stamp set.
I finished by adding a few fun sequins and a fun striped bow using ribbon from my stash. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Paper Issues It's raining cats and dogs-animal themed
2.) Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon Challenge-Girly
3.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge #71 About a Girl/Feminine
4.) Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Die Crazy
5.) Just B Creative Crazy May Linky
6.) DL.ART Challenge #132 Anything Feminine
7.) Crafty Ribbons Challenge #89 Anything Goes w/ribbon
