New Baby Boy

Whoa aren't the weeks flying past?  We are already into March and it's week 5 over at Less is More and time for another challenge.  This week is pastels.  Immediately I thought of new babies and conveniently my mother had asked me to make up a baby card for my cousin who is expecting a new baby soon.  You are all witnesses, she assures me they know they are having a baby boy!

So here is my card -


I've used bashful blue as my card blank and stamped Welcome Baby from the recent Sale-A-Bration Punch Bunch set (sadly no longer available) in the same colour then punched it out with the small tag punch and mounted it onto the same colour card.  I then used the 1/2 inch circle to punch out images from Bundle of Love set.  I coloured the little images with my Stampin' Pastels and re created the mobile effect with some silver string I had.  The Congratulations is from the Perfect Punches set and is also stamped in bashful blue.

I let my husband have a look at my card and he said "Oh yes, it's a clock with pendulums".  Oh dear........

Hi Aileen... I think you husband hit the nail on the head here. If it was a mobile, the strands would be hanging straight down... gravity and all that, the fact that they are splayed gives the pendulum effect!
It's a really cute image and you've chosen a pretty pastel colour!
See you next time!

Clever card, I think it's lovely. My hubby even made a useful suggestion on one of my cards this week...I was quite surprised normally he just tells me when I have stuck things on wonky...which is often!!!

Lol at your hubby - a clock with that many pendulums would be in trouble I think! Sweet card, love the idea of reproducing the mobile effect with the little circles!
