Uniko Studio Challenge and Ren-Yi's Surprise Bridal Shower

Good Afternoon,

I am a wee bit late with my post today.  I keep having on and off computer problems, so getting posts ready is proving to be a tad problematic at times.

However better late than never, so first up is my card for this month's Uniko Studio Challenge which is 'Special Occasions' and what is more special than a new baby.

Supplies Used:
Uniko Studio - Sweet Baby
Avery Elle - DP
Twine from my stash

The Challenge Rules:
