a new baby... beautiful!

Here is a card I am sharing that I made for two friends who were blessed with the birth of a new son recently... A very exiting time as they get used to being parents for the first time and used to having very little sleep - ever again!
I used a Stampin Up stamp set that I have got from the USA and I love it... I decided to use the colours marine mist and so saffron as I think that they are subtle and look really well together. I stamped the image onto whisper white card and then on a sererate on stamped another. I then used my inkpads to paint the images and build the colour up - waiting for the ink to dry before adding anymore. I then cut the second image out to add decoupage to the first image. I then distressed the edges of the panel and inked them. To the card blank I added a piece of marine card and so saffron on top of this and I stamped little rattles randomly all over them once I had done this I also distressed and inked the edges to each panel - the sentiment I stamped in marine card and then mounted this on to the panels of coloured card stock.
In the top left panel I added three card candi 
I hope that you like my card and thanks for looking - apologies for the lack of posts this week I am struggling with my back...
