Baby Boy card to share...

Good evening and a warm welcome to a few new viewers (you know who you are *wink, wink*).  Thank you for your support today, I really appreciate it.

Right, let me get to this evening's card... we're having a Baby Shower one of these days for one of our colleagues... and I was commissioned to make a card as the happy couple are expecting their second child, this time it's a Boy!  I went for the Clean and Simple look this time... no stamped image... yikes, that's so not me! 

I managed to find a little bronzed shoe charm amongst my stash and it fitted this card perfectly. Don't you just love that border and doily, kindly punched for me by my blogfriend Debbie.  The gorgeous papers are from my W&M set of papers - just LOVE them!!!  I use blue far too seldom and it was a great opportunity to use some blue ribbon and buttons for a change.

A little peek at the inside... just love completing the inside of my cards too.  The sentiment is a newbie from the Penny Black range of stamps, purchased from The Scrapbook shop in Bellville.  It's a versatile stamp which one can use for any gender.  The teddy ribbon has landed in the bin more than once, but I am so pleased I fished it out just before throwing the contents away, as it really came in handy for this card.

Thanks for popping by and if you'd like to leave a comment, that would be great as I really appreciate them.  Tons of hugs, Sharon x

Beautiful card Sharon, I'm so pleased that you are able to use the bits that I sent you. I have also been making blue cards lately, I'm trying to use colours that I don't usually use. Hugs xxx

Really cute baby card. I appreciate that you are completing the inside of the card as well. I have noticed a few designers doing that - I guess I will need to try it.
