Baby cards part 1

Earlier this year an appeal was made at Sharons Kardz Korner for baby cards which where going to be donated to a charity. I was game so made eight different designs which I will show you over two posts.
The brief was to make the cards unisex hence the use of a lot of apricot, yellow and greens.

For the first three cards I used the word baby from a design by Erica Fortgens.
The tags are hand cut and distressed around the edges.

The balloons I designed myself

The next two cards feature free patterns from a blog called Berg Kaarten

This is my all time favourite baby pattern. It looks so calm and serene. 
For this charity I stitched one in pink and one in pale brown to cover all race groups.
