A Card For The New Grandparents

Welcome back to my blog!

Great news everyone!  My friend who has been expecting had her baby last night!  She had a little boy called Kyle Alexander Jack (Surname is Jack!)!  8lbs ?oz!  Both Mum and Son doing well!  I made a card for them a couple weeks ago and entered it into a challenge so I thought a card for the new Grandparents would be nice as well!

So here it is!

To make this card I used the following materials:

Smooth White 6x6 Card Blank
Blue Gingham Backing Paper**
Blue Card Stock**
Blue Paper Glitter Card**
Smooth White Card Stock
DoCrafts Daisy & Dandelion Woodland Background Stamp
DoCrafts Daisy & Dandelion Hedgehog Baby Stamp
Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip Ink Pad**
ProMarkers - Leaf Green, Ruby, Grass, Azure**, Powder Blue**, Blush, Cinnamon** & Henna**
2 Blue Spotty Brads**
Pinflair Glue
Double Sided Sticky Tape
3D Foam

I'm quite chuffed about this card as I managed to do some masking in it to use 2 different stamps.  It was my own "Lisa's Masking Technique" I used though, so not exactly the correct masking method!  Put it this way, I have brown ink on my finger from rubbing ink off the stamp on the bit I didn't want to stamp! hehe.  It worked though!

I hope you like it and would love to hear any feedback you have about my card.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #89 - Grys Sketch
Creative Craft Challenges - We're Talking The Colour Blue
Whimsy Stamps Challenge 22 - Blue & Brown Combo (** items above used for this challenge)
