Baby Blanket

Morning Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing a card with you made with the Lili of the Valley Stamp Baby Blanket.

The image was stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. I used a circle nestie to cut it out and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink while still in the die.

The polka dot paper is from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD. It was distressed with scissors and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky.

The other papers are from the Junkitz Cousins range. I used the Martha Stewart Cherish border punch on the striped paper. Again the edges were distressed with scissors but this time I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

I wrapped some Navy Blue Gingham ribbon around the striped paper and added a 'It's a Boy' brad.
I threaded some blue Baker's Twine into some beautiful Polka Dot Buttons that I got from Sam Poole Creative Studios and tied a bow.

The card was assembled as per Sketch Saturday Challenge this week.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
