Oh Baby, Baby!

If you read my last post you'll know that my niece was in labour the other day!
I'm happy to say she had a little boy Aryan, 6lb 4ozs. Mother & baby doing well!
This of course calls for a card!
As you do, I trawled a few sites looking for just the right image!
I found just the one I wanted at Pink Gem Designs he's called Baby Boy Bundle.
I also noticed the challenge on A Gem of A Challenge was a sketch, so I decided to make that the basis for my creation.

Without further ado, here's my card

I have to say I'm really pleaesed with how it worked out!
I coloured the image with promarkers & cut out with a scalloped circle nestie. I coloured the edges then ran my quickie glue pen around & added my lovely Diamond Sparkles glitter!

As you can see, I did the same with my Sentiment

I made the little bunting by cutting a thin strip of card & some triangles from the papers I used. I then added the name by just printing it out & cutting the letters individually. All glued together with my quickie gluepen!

I added a card border which was cut using my new Martha Stewart deep edge punch & glittered the edges! I then  added some Prima Flowers & ribbon from my stash.
Topped off with a few little bits of card candy dotted about et voila!
I hope you like it! I sure do!
