All my friends are reproducing like Wildflowers... so I need some 'Baby' cards!!
I decided to do a Baby Boy card first, because it seemed to fit in with some of this weeks challenges! (Yep - I've got the bug now!)
I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #55 (MTSC55) with a cute little image from a stamp set my sweet DH picked up for me, called PaperCraft - Bears, which I coloured with Prismacolour Pencils blended with Baby Oil.
The base is coredinations cardstock, with some designer paper from my stash as a background for sleepy little ted. I had to handcut the mounted circle behind the bear because I didn't have one that didn't look rediculously too big LOL!! The punch I used on the left is Fiskars Effervescent, and the Coredinations Vintage Cardstock was sanded a little for a slightly distressed look. The wide blue ribbon didn't quite look right on it's own so I popped a strip of brown down the middle.
I finished it all off with Stardust Stickles, a button and ribbon, and a couple of chocolate pearls!
There are so many Challenges at the moment for "something new" that I thought I'd see how many I can cover with this card LOL!!! Here goes:
