Twins!

Hi there!! One last card for me today.  I got an order on the weekend for a baby card….for twins.  The expectant parents had opted NOT to find out the genders before the births, so it had to be a gender neutral card.  And – of course I had NOTHING in my collection that fit the bill for the quickie order.  My coloring mojo just wasn’t there, and since I didn’t have time to wait for it to reappear, I had to go scrounging through some of my other crafting supplies.  Nothing was really speaking to me until I came across a sheet of Winnie the Pooh print paper that I’ve been hoarding for at least 10 years.  No matter, because Winnie is timeless, and genderless, and epitomizes childhood 🙂  I cut out a piece of the sheet, which is printed with blocks of the Pooh character’s faces.  I matted it with white, then die cut the word TWINS, and some baby themed icons.  I arranged everything on a pretty yellow background that I’d edged with white dots made with a gel pen.  I finished the card with a piece of the same printed paper and a computer generated sentiment on the inside 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
