First Birthday

My youngest cousins' son will be one in a few weeks and this is the card I made for him from one of my other cousins!

I've used another cute Lili of the Valley Simply Print images - Fast Asleep Boy, printed onto white linen effect card.  I've used the same card for the bunting on which I've handwritten his name.  Half pearls, ribbon and teddy bear charm are all from my stash.

I've layered the image onto a Make and Create (Poundshop I think) Happy Watercolour 6x6 pad as it matched one of the ribbons perfectly.  The edge of the card and image have been glittered with iridescent glitter glue and the sparkly number is from The Works.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Aunts:  Sketch followed
Crafting With Dragonflies:  Baby Card
Really Reasonable Ribbon:  Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters:  Boys to Men
