The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge mid-month reminder

I'm late in posting this :(

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the mid-month reminder for this month's Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge which is all about BABIES!  Our sponsor this month is House Mouse Designs, which has the most adorable images!! They have graciously donated a $20 gift certificate AND have also offered the free stamp below to a second lucky participant!
While trying to find an image to suit this challenge, I realized that I didn't have many fuzzy baby-related images!  So I kind of just chose one and then tacked a sentiment onto it to make it fit.  I know, I took the easy way out.  I used a Bildmalarna image called "Sweet Climber" along with a sentiment from the recently released Whimsy Stamps Welcome Baby sentiments.  The baby rattle die is also new at Whimsy and it's from the Welcome Baby Die set.  The rattle accommodates all the mini letter seals :)   This is my first time using a Bildmalarna stamp!

I also made this for the last Sentimental Sundays challenge which was to create some handmade flowers, but I'm posting it too late.  The flower was created using a jute loop fringe and some other jute type trim.  There is a NEW challenge up at Sentimental Sundays, and it's "Single Layer Cards,"  so feel free to check that one out (and grab the freebie).

Please head over to The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge Blog so see the other amazing creations by the other Fuzzies.  I hope you get to play along in the challenge this month!!

Stamps: Bildmalarna Sweet Climber; Whimsy Stamps Welcome Baby Sentiments; Medium: Distress reinkers on Blick watercolor paper; Paper: Crate Paper Portrait Collection (I think?); Accessories/tools: Whimsy Stamps Welcome Baby Die set, Spellbinders dies, Marriane D's die, jute loop fringe and jute trim, Ranger Crackle Paint in Picket Fence, pearl
