Retro Wednesday - Baby Sweet

It's another Retro Wednesday at Flourishes and today I'm going back to the archives and pulling out a design I used with one of our retiring Flourishes sets that are on sale....this set that I'm going to show you is called Lamp Post Greetings  and it's a great set that can be used for all occasions, with all sorts of styled flags.... but I've used it here for a baby girl.   And the best part?  It's on sale for $5.59!  And just so you know, when it's gone, it's gone forever.  

When our little niece was born 2 years ago I knit her a blanket in pinks and ivories and then made a card to match with all kinds of pinkness to it.  

I inked it up in White Craft ink, embossed and then did all the soft pastel pink coloring with Prismacolors.  The sign on the post with the stork reads "It's a Girl!"  I really like the monochromatic feel to the design to match the blanket.  And that blanket has been well loved by her too :)

Two of the Flourishes Girls have some fun Retro Wednesday creations to show you today so go check out... Leslie and Barbara.
