Lily Boy Blue

I was asked to make a baby boy card the other day,
and this is what transpired, which I was very happy with.


The image is Baby Cana Lily by McMahon Vintage Digitals, coloured with chalks.


The image was printed on cryogenic paper which has a lovely twinkle in it which shows through any colouring medium.  The image was mounted it on a scalloped oval cut from some shiny blue paper from a 'scrap pack'.



This was mounted over a beautiful ribbon that came wrapped around some stamps (thanks to Layers of Color), and a button was added to that.


The corner was cut using the Vintage corners die, and pearls added for interest.  The sentiment is from Stampendous, and the card was finished with some faux stitching with a glitter pen.

I am linking this to:
Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.
