Step card for new baby

SU Something for baby, Petite Petals, Step Card, Baby Card
My niece is expecting the birth of her third child - a much-anticipated event for the entire family!  No rushing to make a card at the last minute this time - I'm ready!  I've used gender neutral colours to welcome the arrival of my new great niece or nephew and now all I have to do is wait!

I entered this card into the Splitcoaststampers May Holiday Focus challenge (CCREW0515HF) because I was really struggling with the brief for this challenge: Now that Spring is finally here (in the Northern Hemisphere), what are you absolutely excited about that's coming up soon or sure to be coming?

Well, this baby is sure to be coming and it's definitely exciting!  I was struggling with the reference to Spring (or Autumn here in Australia) until it dawned on me that our lives also have seasons (I'm definitely in Autumn!  My colours may be changing but at least noting has actually fallen off yet!).  The colours in this card are Spring-like as well as gender neutral!

Why not have some fun and play along.  Visit the gallery for some great inspiration.  We'd love to see your creations - share them with us by uploading your image to the Creative Crew gallery      Remember to include the code CCREW0515HF in your Key Words.

What are you anticipating so eagerly that needs to be shown & shared to our demo family so they can share excitement along with you?
