Baby Boy Card

What wonderful weather we are having !!
So so nice outside. I have been out doing
stuff with my kids, and not crafted a whole
lot in the last few days !! To nice to be in-doors :)

Been busy doing other stuff as well...we tore
down an old storage building in our back garden .
And re-laid paving stones . Been doing a bit of
Spring cleaning in the house as well....went and
bought new nets for the windows ,and I am going to go
thru my kids clothes this next do they
manage aquireing soooo many clothes !!! But not only
that...all 3 of my kids are going thru growth spurts
at the moment!!! My oldest son is 14 and if he grows
another inch..he will be taller than me :( And I am 5'9"
So by the time he is 16-17 he is gonna tower over me haha.
They grow up way way way to fast !!

Anyways , onto the card :)

I made this card useing the Pickles and Onion stamps,
From the Daisy and Dandelion stamp range.
Pickles is a very cute elephant. I really like his
big butterfly type ears :) And he was fun to colour.
I wanted the card to be simple and
not over powering since it is a baby card.

Items used :
Cream ,white cardstock
DCWV glitter papers
Glitter ribbon ,blue buttons and eyelets from stash
Sizzix texture plate

Pickles from Daisy and Dandelion range
I used WhisperStrokes markers as water colour on him ,
and also used Sakura glitter pens as watercolour
to give the ears a very soft blue sparkle.
Not sure if you can see it in the picture but
its very very pretty !! Sakura Glaze pens to do the eyes.

Thank you for looking :)

What a great card, Cheryl. The layout is excellent, and so is the colour scheme. Oh, and I love those buttons =)
