polka dotted baby buggy

Hey blog friends!  Happy Thursday to you.  Hope you guys are having a great week so far.  Today, I'm sharing a card I created for a cousin's upcoming shower.  This little baby buggy was created from my die cut scraps from the petal cone!  They were the 2 half scallop circles left over from my valentine pouch project.  Isn't that so fun?  Makes me love the petal cone die THAT much more!  Here's another look:
I also had fun using my Cogs Extra Large Punch for the very first time to create my wheel centers.  I punched it out of the First Edition DSP paper, then layered it on top of a 1" circle punch and secured it with the Filigree Flower and Brad.  For the buggy, I added just a teenie bit of Pink Pirouette trim with the Dotted Scallop Border.  And for the handle, I used theSwirls Scribbles sizzlit.  Isn't that cool?  The swirl was just the right size and worked out perfectly!
For the final touches, I added the sweet little flowers from the Itty Bitty Punches and topped them off with Basic Pearls.  The stamped sentiment is from the Something To Celebrate Hostess set from the Occasions Mini, which has quickly become one of my favorite sentiment sets!  How about the recipe for you?
