Baby Boy

Hello All,

Well I finally have a card, i started it last week and finished this morning. I was asked for some baby cards a while ago, and I still have not finished them. I got distracted by all my lovely new stamps......when I have new things to play with I find it difficult to get inspired for things I have to make, I think thats why it took me so long to get this one done, and I am still not sure of the finished result.

The stamp is "WOJ", and I have used "g.c.d studios - Ella Blue".......I just LOVE that paper!!!! All the edges have been colour tinted with "distress ink - antique linen" for the swirl I have used "sizzix - flourish and hearts" and the flower is " Tim Holtz - tattered rose"....I have added a little sparkle with to the swirls with "stickles" and finally added some pearls which have been coloured with my copics to colour match & finally the lace border is created using a "martha stewart" punch.

this is my entry for:

Whiff of Joy - distressing
One Stitch at a time - all celebrations (new baby)
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Lets get punchy

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
