Paper Dolls Challenge #11

It was my turn to post the challenge over at the Paper Dolls Blog today.  The challenge is to make a non-standard size card - anything but 5.5" x 4.25".  This is the card I made.  

It is 3" x 8" on Sweet Blush Card Stock.  The patterned paper is from the Pretty Pastels collection and I inked the edges lightly with the Tea Dye Duo.  The sentiment is from Bitty Baby Blessings and is stamped in Raspberry Fizz.  I cut the flowers from fabric I had left after making this blanket.
I am in love with this floral fabric from JoAnn's! The card and blanket are for my husband's cousin who is expecting a baby girl in September! 

If you create a non-standard sized card, be sure to stop by the Paper Dolls blog and link it up so we can all see it!  You have 3 weeks.

Happy July!!
