    Oh, they turned out perfect! I love your patterns, and I think your rattle is genius!! I won’t lie – the girl one is my fave. Could it be that I am biased with all the pink in my house? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    What a great mix of stamp sets to create both a boy and girl version of your baby cards. I love the use of the script sentiments, that really stands out with the Congrats frame.

    Great cards-I like both colors equally well. I love to make patterned backgrounds so was especially attracted to that part of your card. Very good overall design! ๐Ÿ™‚
