It's a Boy!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Today I bring you a card that I made for a baby shower. The baby is going to be a boy so of course it is in blue and white.

The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is by K & Company. The precious little baby is by Sugar Nellie. I have colored him with Copic Sketch markers. The embossing folder is by Sizzix. The lace is just some that I bought at the fabric store. The tiny pearls are by Martha Stewart Crafts and the button is by Basic Grey. I used the Spellbinder Nestabilities Label 10 on the image and the sentiment is punched out with the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch from Stampin Up.

Here is the inside of the card:

The gingham check on the front of the card has a border that is punched out with the Scallop Edge Border punch by Stampin Up. I have used this same punch on the inside of the card. The origin of the sentiment is not known, but I used the same Spellbinder that I used on the front of the card to showcase it.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
