It's a Girl for Freshly Made

My best friend from college is having a girl this December, and her shower was this past weekend.  Since I rarely make cards ahead of time, and I fell in love with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches at first sight, it seemed like a perfect combo.
My friend is due on Dec. 23, and I'm a Christmas baby myself, so I am so hoping she'll have the most perfect Christmas present ever this year.  But I digress... here's how I brought my card together:
The T is for their last name.  The actual name is being kept secret until the birth.  

This was the second card I made... well, I didn't finish the first, but it wasn't headed in the right direction.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

P.S.  Does anyone else think Blushing Bride is the best shade of pink Stampin' Up has given us in recent years?  Please bring it back!
