Bonny New Baby

Happy Wednesday, dear friends! And what a glorious day it has been so far - blue skies, sun, wonderfully warm day, cool breeze.... o joy! I received more good news today. A colleague and friend delivered a bouncy baby boy. Although he arrived a couple of weeks ahead of schedule, he seems to be doing just fine. The twee li'l nipper is blessed with a tangled mop of fine flaxen fluff. Altogether adorable and oh so squeezable! This card is for Fiona and her bonny blond bairn. The sketch is from Waltzingmouse Challenge #96.
Square card, dry embossed it with Cuttlebug's "Swiss Dots" folder. 
The paper is from Daisy & Dandelion's "Candy Floss and Marshmallow" A4 pack.  
The sentiment is from WMS "Say It Loud" set, I cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Oval die and layered it on pale yellow CS cut with Beaded Oval die. For depth I sponged with TH's Antique Linen. That central piece is not unlike baby Gavin's wee li'l head! 
For embellishment I attached a strip of baby blue gingham ribbon and 2 small buttons. (Is it me or is the sentiment slightly wonky? Oh well, too late now!)
I continued with the blue gingham ribbon on the inside and added 2 teeny tiny blue brads... with plenty of room for me to gush!
I'm also linking this card over at Crop Stop #70 " Emboss It", Divas by Design #34 "One for the Boys" and Make It Monday #88.  You'll find some super creations over at these blogs. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great day too!
