New Baby Boy

Aaaah this is a cutie giraffe digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs, you can buy him here.

This card is for a friend at work.

I decided to use this giraffe because I normally go for actual baby digi's and I am glad I did, he is lovely.

I have coloured him with promarkers and stamp the sentiment to the side of him which is from Elzybells, then mounted on to blue card, I then added a silver heart brad and some blue pearls.
I have embossed somw white card with a baby embossing folder and mounted this onto blue card. I have used a MS zigzag punch for the border at the top and put a sentiment strip from pink petticoat across and added some card candi. The DP I have had for about 3 years and was bought from my local craft shop.
The swirl die cut is a marianne die and I have added some blue pearl hearts to this. To finish i have put a blue gingham ribbon and attached a dummy then tied in a bow and added some darker blue card candi at the bottom. The sentiment is computer generated.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
DDSB challenge #52 ~ ribbons and bows
Delightful sketches challenge ~ ribbon and pastels
Southern girls ~ add an animal
TLT challenge #20 ~ monochrome
