Welcome New Baby

Hi everyone.  Today I have a pretty baby card to share.  I’ll have a new baby niece in July so I thought I’d get the card together ahead of time.  I embellished it with beautiful ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I added a pretty double-layer double-loop bow made with Pearl Pink Delicate Stitched Satin using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view a video tutorial on how I made this bow HERE.
I also added some beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Flowers.  Really Reasonable Ribbon offers a wide variety of mulberry flowers for all your crafting needs.  I used 20mm Open Roses, and 25mm Cottage Roses.  I like to wrap the stem around a needle tool for a fun look.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
I like to make a special gift for new babies and I haven’t had my knitting needles in action in quite a while, so I thought – why not?  
I actually really love knitting and I’ve missed it, so I selected this blanket pattern because it was really pretty easy.  I know it doesn’t look it, but it’s a row of knit, row of pearl, row of knit and then the pattern row.  That’s a relaxing pattern for me because I only really have to pay attention on every 4th row.
I’m entering my afghan in the following challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you like the card and the knitted baby blanket.
