It's a Boy!!!!!

Hello dear friends: Today I have a card that will be on it's way to Lakes of the Ozarks, Missouri to the house of one of my dearest Triathlon friends, who's niece just had a healthy and beautiful baby boy. I had another card I was going to post this morning but, when I read his email requesting for a baby card, I put everything aside and got to work. Lucky me, I had the fabulous theme for the Stamp, Ink, Paper "BABY" and the equally fabulous sketch from Try Stamping or Not on Tuesday, here is my card.

This card was made with a combination of stamp sets, all of the images are stamped on Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. The bassinet and baby toys are from a retired Flourishes set called "Baby Love", super adorable little images, I added a little blue Rhine Stone to each of the Hexagons like the sketch asks. The sentiment was stamped using one of the images on this other retired Flourishes set called "Hello Baby", the die cut is from Spellbinders set called "Tranquil Moments" A2. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from the same Baby Love set, it's words are so true, baby time is so precious and it doesn't last to long, ask me how I know! (Sigh!)
Here are the banners that inspired my card. I turned the sketch horizontally.
SIP Theme 45 800
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Here are the stamp sets I used to create this card.

    1. Thanks Patti, I love when I go and pull out sets that would look great together, even if it's only a bit of flourish, like on the inside of the card.
