Baby Card & Free Baby Heading SVG

I'm today's Designer over at Card A Day Blog and this week's theme is "Baby". 
My card is very easy to make and if you have an electronic cutter and can use SVGs, I have the main element for you FREE!  Here's how I made the card:
1.  I used a scrap piece of pink dotted scrapbook paper (5.5" x 4.25") for the card base. 
2.  I also used other scraps to cut the frame and heading from brown, white, grey and pink cardstock.  The circle element was cut from a matching scrapbook paper scrap.
3.  I stamped the baby pin (SU stamp) design on the white cardstock in light pink ink and added the stitching with a light pink marker.
4.  I shaded the heading with Distress Inks and waterpen.  The white details were done with a gel pen.
5.  I took a little white tag and stamped "For" in brown ink and tied it to the pin with white sparkley thread.
6.  I attached all the pieces with a glue stick and then the complete element was attached to the card base with foam dots.
7.  I rounded the corners with a punch. 
You can get the FREE file HERE.
Note:  The layered frame (that I used on the card) is also included in the file. 
For some reason I couldn't get it to show up in PhotoShop, but it's there!
I hope you'll also take a peek at the new "Baby Set"
--it goes perfectly with the heading freebie!
You can see the set details HERE .

That is really cute. I am going to see if I can make the word "shower" to go with it so I can use it on the invintations I need to make. Thanks so much for sharing.
