It's A Boy!

It's a while since I made a baby card so I thoroughly enjoyed doing this one using this gorgeous little digi stamp, isn't he the cutest? I followed the great sketch, one I shall use again and again. I started by embossing half of a piece of card and then adding the gingham paper to the other half. I then cut and punched a strip of card to go across the middle adding a piece of ribbon. If you look closely at the ribbon you will notice this is where the sentiment is. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and chalk and layered with Nesties. A few punched flowers, leaves, gems and card candy finishes the card. I have tried to keep everything to a minimum so I hope it qualifies as a clean and simple card. Hope you like this one, thanks for looking.
