Baby shower gift for a baby girl

Babies are the best thing!!  Another baby girl has been added to my extended family and I made a set of these for the baby shower.  I love the white on white look but don't do it very often so I thought I would play with that a  bit.  I used a white card front and added an embossed layer (SU) with a corner of swirls and flowers. I added some white vintage seam binding to the top portion and glued the ends to the back.  I layered the cute little elephant over a pink scalloped circle and mounted it over the seam binding using 3D foam tape.  I tied a short piece of seam binding to the piece on the front to the left of the focal element with a single knot to simulate a bow.  I could have gone all white which may have been a bit more classic but the pink was calling to me.  I have packaged them up and they are ready to go!!
