It's a Boy (Card)!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Monday! I'd planned to be crafty just about all day today, but I ended up having to do some things around the house first. As a result, I didn't get to my craft desk until almost two o'clock. :-p The main thing I wanted to get done today was to make a card to go along with our neighbor's baby gift. After doing some blog searching for a good sketch, I found this one at Cupcake Craft Challenges:
I decided it was PERFECT for what I had in my stash, so this is the card I came up with:
I also added a piece of patterned paper and another sentiment on the inside to give the card a more polished look. The crawling baby is a Cricut I received from my friend Suzanne (Thanks, Suz!) in a Cricut cut swap in the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin', and I adhered it with pop dots to add a little dimension to the card. The ribbon, buttons, sentiment sticker, and patterned paper are all from my stash. I'm entering the card in these challenges:
