Baby boy card

Hi everyone:)

I'm a little bit later posting this than I had planned. Phoebe had a birthday party to go to this morning and we're just home.
I made this card for my sister-in-law's sister who had a baby boy, Fionn (pronounced Finn) on Valentine's day :)   I found it really hard to match the colour of the pram with the background paper but after throwing 3 in the bin, I admit defeat and this one will have to do!  The papers are imaginisce and the sentiment is computer generated.  The gorgeous little image is from DigiStamp boutique. I embossed the striped paper in the Big Shot using the Sizzix snowballs folder.



I don't think you can see it in the photo but I added glossy accents to the heart and the frills on the pram.

Thank you for visiting by my blog :)
I'll be back tomorrow with the card I made for the birthday boy today.

Have a lovely evening!
Sarah xx

Wow you really are busy at the minute Sarah!! Love the card. It can be frustrating when your colours won't work. Sometimes I get Naomi to help out. She has a good eye for colour.

The more vivid colour on the image makes it really pop Sarah. I love the combination of colours and papers you've chosen and there's loads of lovely texture in there as well. Hope mum and baby are doing well! Vicky x
