Baby shower thank you cards

I made some thank you cards for my friend as part of her gift for a baby shower.  I used a $1 Michael's onesie stamp that I stamped on My Mind's Eye De-Lovely paper.  I snipped them with my detail scissors and popped them up on foam dots.  I did a couple of different designs.  This one uses dark chocolate card stock with the cane print impression plate from Papertrey.
The sentiments here were from a Mat Stack set.
Here are some more of the ensemble:
I used the Thanks definition cling stamp from Hero Arts as the background of the cream cards and a Paper Smooches sentiment in Jenni Bowlin Spiced tin - the perfect navy colour ink!
 I used various Papertrey Impression plates on the kraft coloured cards after stamping the cute sentiment.
I made a box to hold all 8 of the cards - 4 cream and 4 kraft.  She absolutely loved them and they were a lot of fun to make. 

Supplies:
Paper: Chocolate brown, Staples 110lb, My Mind's Eye De-Lovely
Stamps: PTI Mat Stack 1 Collection, Michael's onesie, Paper Smooches sentiment sampler, Hero Arts thanks definition cling stamp
Ink: Jenni Bowlin spiced tin, stick candy
Miscellaneous: various Papertrey Impression plates, foam dots, detail scissors

What a lovely gift. I am sure the Thank you cards were appreciated. I like how you varied the cards, but kept some elements the same.
