Baby boy

Today's card is a new baby card - I fancied a change from birthday cards and couldn't bear to think about Christmas just yet!

Here's what I've used:
Stamped image: free Bentley bear stamp set (cover gift from this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine) coloured with Pro Markers
Papers and sentiment - from DCWV
Heart brad and ribbon - Papermania
Small brads - can't remember, sorry

Because it is a baby boy card I wanted the design to me fairly plain and simple but I have decoupaged the balloons to give the card a bit of dimension.

I am going to enter today's card into the following challenges:
Just cute Bears: 3 brads, 2 papers, 1 ribbon
Sketch and stash: their image below.  The newest part of my stash is the free stamp and the neglected part is the sentiment which I've had in a kit for a few years.

The Pixie Cottage: 3D decoupage

Thanks for looking - not sure how much crafting I will get done today as the sun is already shining gloriously.  Must make the most of it while it's here!
