baby boy on his way

Friends of ours are due to take delivery of a baby next week and we already know it's a boy. This means I can have a card ready for them, personalised inside.

The sketch followed was over at Inspirational Card Sketches.

I used three stamps on the block at once to stamp all over the backing with stormy sky DI.

The image was coloured using promarkers. I heat embossed the outline and smudged blue metalic pencil round as the border. This was layered with pads onto white card with a little verse from verses4u. this was in turn layered onto some CS I had punched out when at a friend's house. This was rubbed over with gold metalic rub-on.
The ribbon is blue organza with yellow ric-rac on top.
Another couple of stamps used. The baby blocks stamped with stormy sky onto blue velum and stuck to a yellow gingham punched circle and baby boy stamped onto another piece of that yellow gingham.
All this was mounted onto a yellow base card with gold peel-off to tie in with the image layer.

I am entering this into the challenges over at
