PPPR "Baby Shower" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Baby Shower" blog hop.  The PPPR design team will be showcasing baby themed projects utilizing a variety of Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' products.  You should have arrived at my blog from Nanne's blog.  If you missed the beginning of the hop, you will want to head to Lisa's blog so you don't miss any of the fun (or the blog candy too!!)

For my project I decided to make a card, specifically a "tall or long" card.  My card fits a business envelope.


I used a new file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons  - the "Baby Shower" Cutting Files to create the banner for my card.  I did add an extra shadow layer to make it "pop" more.  I layered it on some foam tape for added dimension as well as glued some yellow twine bows to it and a couple of adhesive backed pearls.  I took the letter cut outs from the word baby adhered them to the front of my envelope.  
Lisa is giving away a $15 gift certificate to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' store.  For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment on each blog. For extra chances, you can also "LIKE" Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Facebook and/or sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter  A random winner will be chosen for the prize on Tuesday, April 15.
It is also the start of a new PPPR challenge and you guessed it, the theme is Baby!!  For more information on the challenge including the rules and link please go here.  Again, one winner will be chosen for a gift certificate to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' store.

Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Roberta.  Thanks for stopping by today - have a great weekend!!
