A Sweet Baby Boy

****************

This is a very late congratulations card from son & DIL to their friends - the original email with the pic got lost in cyberspace.

All of the papers here are from my bits box so I am very pleased with myself to have found all these that matched the pic of the new arrival.

The 'plain' blue  rectangle has fine polka dots on it though hard to see in the pic. I ran the red through the CB with swiss dots and went over the top  and edges lightly with a white ink pad - again not very clear
I matted the pic of the baby on to red card then adhered to silver mirri with foam pads.







Simple embellishments of some muslin, buttons, gingham bow and flower. I have had the ribbon and the teeny buttons in my stash for well over 10years.
I nearly gave up trying to get the thread through the holes of these miniscule buttons but I am not one to give up and triumphed in the end.
The sentiment circle was made in Publisher and adhered with foam pads..
