Welcome Baby Boy

Hi there everyone it's Shelly here stopping by with my card for this week.  This week we have an animal theme and this was a bit of a challenge for me as I don't tend to 'feature' animals on my cards!

Then I sat down and had a think and inspiration struck, as it does, and I decided to use this fabulous Woodware Noah's Ark clear stamp to make a baby card.

The stamp is a great size for a 6 x 6 card and I sat for ages colouring it with my Copics and hey I know I've coloured the fish green and you don't see many green fish (or at least I never have) but call it artistic licence, I needed some green to match in with the papers !

The papers are from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Boy 6 x 6 pad and I have to say these are some of my favourite papers so far this year.  As a contrast I've matted everything onto dark brown cardstock.

I haven't added a great deal of embellishment to this card as the stamp takes up quite a large part of it but I've used some twine and a chunky green button and made a fancy scalloped edge using one of the dies from the Crafts Too Frames 8 die set.

Well I'm off now, be sure to keep stopping by to check out what the rest of the DT girls have in store for you this week.
