New Baby Card - Birds of a Feather

My Neice gave birth to a beautiful baby boy (Layton John) on Tuesday 8th July
So after my TV appearence on Create & Craft I new I would be straight back to reality and making a card the minute I got home.
What was good for me was I won the Birds of a feather stamp set from Papertrey Ink and it was sitting on my doormat waiting for me as I opened the door what perfect timing.
On cream card stock I stamped the little bird, eggs and nest and the New Beginnings sentiment. I cut out a blue scalloped square with the nestibilities and used the matching plain square to cut out the stamped image.
I stamped the words Just hatched several times down the right hand side of the base card, layered Bless this Baby onto matching blue card then tied it all together with a contrasting ribbon and added 3 blue pearls in the left corner.

Ingrediants: Stamps - Papertrey ink Birds of a Feather, Card - stock Papertrey ink Kraft, inks - Palette Lemon Tart, Brilliance - peacock and Fluid chalk inks by Colorbox
