Celebrate Baby

Happy weekend.  Today I have a baby card for you.  I used two challenges for my inspiration.  The first is the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #149.  The other is the Fab Friday Challenge #48 - make a baby card to celebrate one of the design team members who just had a baby boy.  I don't need one at the moment, but I'll be glad I have it when the need presents itself.

Base:  Coastal Cabana card stock.  Attached a piece of Lullaby designer paper to Hello Honey card stock and added it to the card front.
Ribbon Layers:  To each of two pieces of Pistachio Pudding card stock I added two lengths of Baked Brown Sugar ribbon, straight edges together.  Over that I added Hello Honey ribbon and attached both layers to the card.
Image/Sentiment:  The sentiment from the Celebrate Baby stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card 
stock with Baked Brown Sugar ink and the layer matted with Hello Honey card stock.  I stamped the mobile from the same stamp set on Whisper White with Pistachio Pudding ink and fussy cut out the top.  I popped it up on the card with Dimensionals.  For the stars I used the In Color Sequins.  The   Baked Brown Sugar marker was used to draw the strings.  I stamped the part of the mobile with the moon on Whisper White with Hello Honey ink, cut it out and attached it with a piece of Dimensional.  Dimensionals were also used to add the layer to the card.
The Finishing Touch:  Pearls were added to the center of the stars, along the scallops of the mobile top, and as a hanger for the mobile.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.  As a reminder, I have blog candy waiting to be claimed (see this post here).  Leave a comment by Sunday, August 17, 4:00 pm on posts between Thursday and Sunday or drop me an e-mail.  Please remember to include your e-mail so I can reach you if you win.  Enjoy the weekend.
