A Baby Boy Card

When I was cutting out letters on the Craft Robo I did another set for 'Baby Boy'. I wasn't sure that I would have time today to make up a card, but I did, so have just finished putting it together.

Whilst browsing blogs today I saw another great sketch over at the Papertake Blog, so have had a go at following the sketch for this card. It isn't too dissimilar to the Baby Girl one I did earlier today.

The materials I've used for the card are: ivory linen card - letters and first mat; blue gingham cardstock, a piece of blue ribbon, white satin teddy bear ribbon, a star embellishment that I have had for absolutely ages, but never knew quite what to do with it, 3d pads for the letters and some pale blue flat backed gems. The star is blue glitter card, the ribbon is rather sparkly and I've add the gems as a big of bling.

Another card that I am really pleased with.

I must be on a record this week as I have made 9 cards in the last few days, so I expect to loose my cardmaking mojo sometime soon!

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenge:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Sketch
Cards for Men - Decoupage hope the 3d letters count for this
