The challenge for the week at CAS-ual Fridays is to use stickers. Wouldn't you know it, just last Thursday I was cleaning out my room and found nine packs of stickers that I bought when I first started making cards. Nine packs of anything unused is a ton for me so I told myself that I would put them to use. I never use stickers, but I was going to force myself to do it. And then ... the very next day, CAS-ual Fridays challenges us to use stickers!! YIPPEE!!! This may be the only card I make using stickers, but at least I used five of them :)
I made this card for some friends who are about to have their first babies -- TWINS! They are having a girl and a boy so I made sure to incorporate pink and blue. For the sentiment I masked off the word "bundle" on the Congrats stamp and then added "Blessings" from a different set. I used my scor-pal to add an embossed frame around the card front and pierced a few holes for more visual interest.

Stamps: Polka Dot Basics II, First Fruits, Signature Greetings
Paper: Stampers Select White
Ink: Summer Sky, Tuxedo Black (memento), Pretty in Pink (SU!)
