For a Baby

I needed a card for a new baby........I love this Lili of the Valley stamp.....their stamps are great value at £3.75 each.....and they have have free worldwide shipping at the moment.......they also had this great sketch on the LOTV challenge blog.
I used Nesties to die cut the image which has been coloured with copics........the card is DCWV with a Martha Stewart border punch......the papers Forever Friends Pink Parfait...........the gems a bargain in my local Pound shop......the flowers Floradoodles.......ribbon from stash.
The sentiment is a great free download from Caz......part of a whole sheet of 'ticket' sentiments......think I'll be using those a lot.
Totally Gorjuss want 'round and round'.....Stamp Something want 'celebrate something' and Cute Card Thursday want 'someone special'
And having spent most of the day in the garden ......we now have a bright blue shed........a cleaned out pond..........and fences strung with wires for the clematis.......am now off to cook dinner.

You've got to love a blue shed! Let's see a picture.

I'll bet that card will be kept by some proud parents for a long time to come.
