Flowers - Sugar Plum Roses in Caribbean
Sentiment - Making Memories
Pearls - The Paper Studio
Lace - Offray
Die Cut - Beaded Circles by Spellbinders


This was the great sketch that we had the option of using.



I absolutely love this image. The baby is so adorable and could so easily work for boy and girl cards. I paper pieced the flower and pea pod and then inked all the layers before glued them down.
All the die cuts are inked around for a soft distressed feel.
I even inked the pearls to make them match the whole style of the card.
I really hope you like this one and will come along and share your cards and creations for all the boys big and small in your life over at The Pixie Cottage!
Katie
