A baby boy!

I used Excalibur (my Grand Calibur)for this card, as you can tell! I used a Grand Nestie Labels One for the papers and base, and folded one in half and glued it to the back to make a stand. The papers are Bearly Mine Boys Zone.

The image is a hAnglar and sTenglar, coloured with Specciesand the wings stickled. I used foam pads to give him dimension, and also curled the image a bit to make him look more realistic. The buttons are Paperchase, the button twine is Whiff of Joy. The alphabet beads are from stash and I've had them for yonks! The banner is a Molly Bloom stamp, free with a magazine, and I stamped it on coloured paper and stickled the flags.

I'm entering the following challenges:

Just Magnolia where 'Anything Goes' with an option of circles - there are circles on one of the papers, and I hope the buttons count, too!

Papertake Weekly where 'Anything Goes' with an option of a shaped card

Sketch Saturday - I flipped the sketch.

Gotta love you and leave you, time to start the tea!

Thanks for looking

luv, Mags x
