Heidi, both of your cards are gorgeous! I'm a huge fan of using non-traditional colors for holiday or themed cards, so your baby card completely rocks! Love that itty bitty heart on the elephant's trunk and how you repeated the polka dots throughout the entire design. Too cute! Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players this week! :)
