My First Challenge!

I was so excited to make this card for a couple of reasons.  First of all, some good friends are expecting their first baby in about 6 weeks, and they're having their baby shower next weekend.  So of course I needed to make a card for that!  Second, I saw the 'New Arrival' challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion and thought this would be a perfect way to get started with blogging challenges.  And finally, I just got the 'Sweet Baby' My Pink Stamper stamps, which are so neat - and obviously perfect for this occasion!  I saw the stork and delivery images on the 'New Arrival' cartridge and thought they fit perfectly with the sentiment from my new stamps.  Here's my creation and my introduction to scrapping challenges!  Thanks for stopping by to check it out!!
