Here comes baby!!

ETA:  I am entering this card for the new challenge at the Caardvarks. I always recieve their blog updates and never had the chance to enter anything before. So, I am glad I have this card to play along!

Yeah, I love spring! The weather is so perfect, the trees are blooming, and the birds are returning to their nest. It is spring my friends, and I love this time of the year!
I have a card to share today. I made this one for the Die Cuts R Us challenge.

I must say that I was so tempted to add more embellishments to my card, but I didn’t do it because I needed to stick to the challenge’s rules. As you can see, I made a little boy’s card. A couple of weeks ago I made a girls card, so it was about time to make one for a boy. You never know when you will need one! The image is from Inkadinkado ~ Baby boy set.

I used my circle and label three nestabilities dies for the focal point. I cut a strip of paper and stitched it to the circle. I added the tree buttons near the image to draw more attention to the focal point. The organza ribbon is from my stash. The patterned papers are from PTI (tiny polka dot) and the other one is from DCWV (stripes). * The little dots on the elephant are part of the image, they were enhanced by appliying a little bit of liquid applique, those are not pearls!

Okay girls, thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!
