Retro, baby...!


Today I am here with a happy card - the best kind huh?!!  :)  On Monday, my friends' daughter had a little baby boy!  They've called him Tommy and he is just gorgeous!  I haven't seen him in the flesh yet :(  but the photo my friend showed me was just adorable :)

So, I had cause to make a baby card.  I used this Retro Sketches sketch;

At first, I thought the sketch looked a little busy for me, but after looking through the DT examples I was convinced to have a go :)  Here is what I came up with;

I used patterned paper - in fact I used TWO patterned papers!!  I do love papers, however I never feel like I can make them look right; therefore I have a large stash of them and very seldom do they actually get their debut!  Well, not today!

I hope Kim (the new Mum) and her family are enjoying their beautiful new addition - I can't wait to meet him!  This card will be on its way to them this afternoon :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)
