Ooooh, a baby!

My friend had a baby boy last week...

... and I wanted to make them a special card.
I remembered this image, which I won from Di's Digi Downloads a little while ago,
that I hadn't got round to using yet. 
I coloured it with my promarkers and added a strip of blue gingham paper 
(always good for baby cards, I find!)
I printed out babies name, birth date, time and weight
and embossed a hearts background, with a new folder I bought,
whilst we were in Canada.(my fave folder at the mo!)
Precious hearts die-cuts ( my fave die at the mo!)
and a little gingham paper bow finished this 6 x 6 card.

Aww, fabulous card, it is so sweet. I love the cute little image and your fav embossing folder and your gorgeous heart die - of course it is the way you have put it all together that makes it such a special card.
