For a New Big Bro!

Our next door neighbours have just had a baby girl, (I can't wait til she comes home from hospital and I can have a cuddle!) and I decided to make a card for their four year old son, Noah, who has just become a big brother for the first time.  I've used one of the new Pink Gem digis, this one's called Andy on Tyre Swing, you''l find it in the store here.
 The image has been coloured with Promarkers to match these bright and cheerful Papermania Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection papers and buttons, I love this range for boy's cards.  I inked all the edges with Barn Door Distress Ink for definition.
The sentiment was computer generated, then die cut.  The stars were die cut too, with Xcut dies, I'd be lost without that set!  The starry border punch is from Tonic, I must get some more of these as they really do punch through anything, the gears make them so easy to use.
Some knotted ribbon, buttons and red pearls finish my bright and breezy card off.
