Special Baby Delivery!

Hi there!
Happy Saturday everyone! It's so nice to be enjoying the weekend again and last night I had the chance to put together the Friday Sketchers challenge with a baby boy card I have been asked to make. It was a great sketch layout from Bea and I really love the fact I was able to accomplish not only the sketch but also the card order I needed to do, lol!
The papers are from a baby stash I had (can't recall the company, sorry). I used a cuttlebug tag die set to make the tag which I stamped the sentiment on. I used the Martha Stewart doiley punch on some white cardstock to add detail to the bottom of the panel. I stamped the main image (Inkadinkado) on white cardstock which I die cut with my oval nestabilities. I stamped the image again, coloured and cut it out and popped it up using dimensionals. I used my tombow markers to colour in the image. I finally took a leap of courage and bought my first Copics *hooray* but I'm still playing around with them and am no way ready to post anything yet coloured with them!!! I used a wide white grosgrain ribbon with a narrower blue to run through the tag and sit on the top. I tied some narrow white ribbon through three buttons and glued them to some pale blue flowers. My final touch was 3 small pearls above the sentiment which filled in the space nicely. I hope you like the finished card.
Thanks for stopping by today. I had hoped to stamp this afternoon but I got invited out for a cup of tea and girlie chat instead and have to say that was a very enjoyable alternative! Tomorrow is always another day, right?!
Hugs, as always,
Danielle x
