♥ Cute card Thursday ~ Monochrome ♥

This baby bib card was a pre ~ made one I bought a 5 x pack of them a good while back, but im sure they would be easy enough made using nesties. The little fabric stitched bottle is a handmade sticker and the sentiment is a printout {from before my printer collapsed!! LOL}
