Baby Boy

This week Rainbow Lady's Challenge 51 is 'Alphabet - A'
This card is for baby Arthur Andrew so i reckon it qualifies, even if it pushes the boundary just a bit :-)

I added the image digitally in Serif Photoplus to my chosen BP by lowering the transparency until it merged. It took me an age to do this mainly because it has been a long time since used this programme for anything more than saving my pics and my poor old brain cell had forgotten how to do it.
I am well into making flowers and this one has a prima centre and I had to add a small piece of lace and a bow. The 'baby' word and 'Boy' disc were cut with CB and the 'bundle of joy' at the bottom is actually stamped. Stamping directly on to a card makes me very nervous but I am reasonably happy with it.

Thank you for your visit and for any comment you care to leave. All comments are truly appreciated.

Irene, this is a beautiful card. I love all the detail you put into it. I know what you mean about having to relearn how to do stuff. That happens all too often with me.

I wish I could visit your blog more because you have a lot of wonderful art here. But my computer doesn't seem to be compatible with the slide program you have. It has taken me 10 minutes to get the little ball to stop spinning so i could leave a comment.

Such a beautiful card Irene (I love this image!) the colours and layout are just stunning.
You're so clever to be able to manipulate these graphics programmes, I haven't got a clue!
