Sweet Baby Boy

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for Baby Jack.  Dear friends of our's have welcomed their first grandchild.  We are so happy for them and for the new mom and dad who will receive the above card. :)

Simple design using a medium circle die for the bib, and a small oval for the neck opening.  I added some light acetate smooshing in the background with pale green and pale blue.  Three small pearls finish the bib.  And a black sentiment banner was white embossed with "sweet" and "boy" with a die-cut "baby" adhered to the center.

Since this card is made with snippets, I'm heading over for some fun at the Playground.

Edited to add:  Thanks to my friend, Jules ... I'm adding this to the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #175 - Tiny Fingers and Tiny Toes.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
