Oh Baby!

Hi ya friends,
Spring has sprung with some of my friends. Many are planning for babies, waiting on arrivals, & just boarding the 9 month voyage to motherhood! While my baby days are way in my rear view mirror, my friends are just getting started! It's not that I started super early, but they're in their 30's so it's about time! Well, the great news for me is that means I get to make some of my fav things to make- baby cards *Ü* One that I have to share today that's going to a friend who is having her first baby boy!
Here's my card:
  I HAD to use a sweet baby Edwin, of course! He's colored with Prisma pencils and Gamsol. I love coloring baby images with my Prismas cuz it gives it a soft, angelic look, don't ya think?! I used my fav baby papers from Graphic 45---> happy sigh... and then made a little garland of sorts with MS punches- a little sheep, teddy bear, bow, button, elephant, heart, & safety pin. I also used the Beaded Circles Nesties because it reminded me of baby beads Ü. The strip going across are embossed buttons.

Here's a closer look at this cutie:
I used Stardust Stickles on the stars though it's hard to tell...

I recently came across a new (to me) Magnolia challenge blog called Marvelous Magnolia & I was so tickled cuz so many Magnolia blogs have closed :( so I'm playing along with their current challenge: New Beginnings.

I also used this sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp:
I'll also be playing along in the following challenges:
