New Baby Boy

NO! not me!! lol

My daughters friend has just had a baby boy and here is the card i've made...

The thing is, I had run out of baby blue cardstock for the dungarees! so I printed a sheet off with my printer, phew!The paler blue paper in the background was also made by myself, it does have a very subtle check design on it, although it is hard to see in the photo.
The buttons are card stock too, and I used white cotton to 'thread' them.
The other 'stitching' is paper piercing and a white gel pen.
The sentiment is from SU's fun and fast notes stamp set.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, which has the theme 'monochrome'... i'm just in time to enter, deadline is 8pm today!
Also Totally Gorjuss have the theme 'cuddly' this week, now i've not used a cuddle image, but a new baby is lovely to cuddle so maybe i'm allowed to enter???
Another fab challenge is CES challenges, who don't want to see designer papers, well I have made my own on the pc so think that qualifies :)

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day xx
