Baby boy

A baby card - for a change from engagement and anniversary!  The stamp is from LOTV, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The paper is from one of the Nitwits 8 x 8 pads from LOTV - I had to put an order in when I discovered they weren't coming to the NEC - but I really wanted to see all the paper and new stamps IRL! :-( For the layout I followed the sketch on this weeks Friday Sketch Challenge and as I paper pieced the balloons, I can also enter this weeks CCT challenge.  I used Nesties dies for the ovals and a DooHickey die for the leaves (- so its eligible for this weeks Simon Says challenge).  The flowers were made from scraps of the paper using a small punch and small adhesive pearls.


  1. What a sweet card! So many lovely little details... love how the cluster of flowers mimic the cluster of balloons. :) Thanks so much for participating in the 'Punches & Dies' challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog! xo
