A Spoon Full of Sugar - challenge 35 - Oh baby

Trying out this new challenge called "A spoon full of sugar" (has to have something to do with the house of since I have such a sweet tooth, I thought I'd have a go. The challenge is to make a card for a new baby, expecting mother, new mother of preschooler. I made a card using two precut scalloped edge chipboard with bookrings in them. It is ment to be made into a book, there was pages in it when I bought it. I got it in the Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin, it's 8 by 8 but can't remember who it is by...sorry...anyway, I fancied making a chunky card so I took the pages out. I have used ribbon from stash, the papers are from a pad by Deja Views called "Little ones" by Sharon Ann. There is a girl one aswell and both are adorable. Quite expensive but you get a lot for your money. The papers are 8 by 8 and there is four pages of punch outs and one page of sentiments. I used loads of the punch outs, I felt like I had cheated a bit after since you don't have to cut anything out, but it was fun. I have made this card for a little boy called Finn, that was born about a week ago. Hope his mum likes the card I have made. Thanks for popping by and have a good week.

Love this :0) Great idea for a baby card. New mum can always add pages to it as well so it's a card and baby book in one!!
