Baby Boy

My Nan has asked me to make a card for a baby boy...he's not due until April 1st...but I thought that I may as well get on with it, while I've got time to play! Despite my Penny Black addiction, I really don't have many suitable stamps for a new baby card...my Nan picked this cute sleeping teddy ('Dream a dream') out of the images I've got with me. Although it's not that clear in the photo, I've decoupaged him in three layers. The backing paper is from the Papermania 'Sweet Nothings' pack, and I've used my 'Swiss Dots' folder on the strip across the centre. The ovals and the scalloped edging were cut using Nesties, and the letters were done using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.

I really hope that they haven't got it wrong...although I do have time to make a baby girl card, should I need to!
