Grace Catherine

Good morning to all my very special friends and  followers I hope you are all looking forward to the long weekend and  have lots of things planned. Today I'm sharing a baby card I've made recently to welcome Grace Catherine she is the new daughter of my Cousins son Scott and  his lovely wife Rosie. Some of you may remember I did the Wedding Stationery for them a few years ago.They had a little boy Nathaniel in January 2016 and now have this beautiful baby girl Grace Catherine born on the 9th August 2017.
I used one of my favourite Lili of the Valley baby stamps Balloon Basket for the card.
