Baby Boy

Two posts in one day! Only because I forgot to blog this card yesterday as I was caught up in finishing off two special order cards for tomorrow evening and I knew I'd be out of the house and fit for not much by the time I got back tonight. Which is true!  I'm shattered and aching but it didn't rain and Samuel came first in the Cadet Honda karting class and he broke the 50 second lap barrier too!

Anyway, here is the card.  Blue cardstock from my stash along with the ribbon, button and vellum.  The vellum has been run through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and layered on top is a cute mini square from Lili of the Valley which is pre-coloured.

The charm I found at the bottom of a tin (had random things in it but nothing to eat!) and the sentiment is one of the new Jellypark baby sentiments.  Button from my stash too. And because it is a baby card, lashings of stickles and liquid pearl dots!
