Congratulations - IBSIC #17 & FMS #43...

The temperature here has gone down a lot.  We are having a beautifully cool and rainy day; it is a very welcome reprieve from the heat.

This week I have decided to combine two challenges.  I am participating in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, for the first time, and the always awesome, Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge.

I found out my next door neighbor's daughter is expecting a baby in 4 months and with all the beautiful pastel colors in the IBS challenge I was inspired to make a card for the up coming arrival of this new small person.

When I finished creating this I was so proud of myself; I thought that I had made my first post using all current Stampin' Up! product.  But alas, I was mistaken.  The sentiment is from a past hostess set.  Oops!  Oh well. LOL Maybe next time :)

The card I am sharing is for this week's Inspired by Stamping challenge:  
IBSIC #17.
