New baby card

I made this card for a friend who's just had a beautiful little baby boy and it will also fit in with the challenge on Penny Black Saturday and Cute Card Thursday.

The lovely Penny Black elephant was stamped for me by a friend. I coloured the image with prismacolor pencils and oms, added waterfall stickles to the flowers, a gem and a sentiment with doodlebug rub on letters then mounted it on blue bazzil card. I made the background paper in photoshop, printed it out and cut a piece for the bottom mat and one for the panel under the image. These were layered over a strip of blue bazzil card edged with a fiskers punch. I added a prima flower and gem to finish. TFL.

Thank you to everyone who's left comments on previous posts, I appreciate them very much.

Back soon,
Chris
