Less is More Challenge week 68

The LIM challenge this week is to make a card suitable for:

I have kept it very simple this week as I am still recovering from a very hectic weekend in Edinburgh. 

I have chosen to use a Quickutz stork die that I remember that I spent months trying to buy at a reasonable cost from Ebay. It had been discontinued and was selling for ridiculous sums.  My patience paid off however, as Quickutz reintroduced it for a short period and I was able to purchase it at the recommended price.

The card stock is a pale blue.  I chose this so that the white of the stork and bundle would stand out. I also used a square frame die to cut a glittery base for the stork to sit on.  The sentiment was the last of a set of silver rub-ons that I have found invaluable .  I wonder if I will be able to find some more?

As a postscript, here are some photos that I took at the weekend.  I was invited to the hen weekend of a friend's daughter. It was game of her to invite some "oldies" to the celebrations.  The cupcakes were made during a cupcake decoration class.
