Believe in Miracles

Hi there! 
Today I have a card for a special friend.  She and her husband have been trying to get pregnant for quite awhile.  They finally went to a fertility specialist who basically told her in no uncertain terms that it would take a miracle for her to get pregnant and that just wasn't going to happen.  Bottom line is that she is now pregnant (6 weeks) and is due the day before MY birthday in February!!! 

Even though the medical professionals continue to be negative about her pregnancy going to term, I want to celebrate this special time with her.  It's hard for her to be excited about this special event when all the professionals are dooming her to miscarry.  So I made this card to celebrate her pregnancy and to put an exclamation point on the fact that the docs said it would take a miracle.  Miracles DO happen!!!

All paper is from Basic Grey Oh Baby! except for the cardstock used for the sentiment (SU!).  The sketch is for the MOJO Monday challenge.  The sentiment is from the Verve set, Believe.  I used an SU! punch for the large butterfly and a Martha Stewart punch for the the small one.  I added purple Swarovski crystals to accent the Imperial Purple Versafine ink.  Ribbon is from PaperTrey.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder to add the texture to the orange cs, using the indented side on the outside.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Ooh La La - baby
The Crazy Challenge - ribbon, gems & punches
Stampin' For the Weekend - bugs & butterflies
Southern Girls - Things with WIngs

Thanks for stopping by!
