New Baby

I'm really pleased how this card turned out,I know it's simple in design but I just love it.

The cute Giraffe is a stamp from Pink Gem Designs,I stamped him onto white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Ink (now in stock at Scrapbook Sisters) I coloured him using Copics and then used my Revolution Nesting circles,I used the clever little trick that I found on "The Animal Factory" blog where you leave part of the image uncut so that it stays outside of the circle.Can't explain it very well but hopefully you can follow the link where the technique is explained beautifully. I then used Nestabilities to cut a scalloped circle in blue.The name was cut using the sizzix Alpha bubble dies.The card stock,blue ribbon and Woodware greetings stamps were also from Scrapbook Sisters.
Congratulations to Lisa and Justin on the latest addition to your family!
Hope you like the card,
thanks for stopping by,
Julie
