It's a Boy

I recently treated myself to a gorgeous Forever Friends baby stamp set.  They're all so sweet I could hardly decide which one to play with first!  Eventually I settled on this one which is large and fun to colour.  I'm sure the bear's a big brother peeping into the Moses basket to see the new baby.  I stamped the image with Rich Cocoa Memento ink to give a soft look and coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The sentiment stamps are from the same set.
The lush papers are Eline's Nursery by Marianne.
Because the image is so large, I didn't have room to add a huge amount, but I did manage to squeeze on some ribbon, a bow, some die cut nappy pins made with an Xcut die and a sprinkling of tiny blue gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Hotshot Crafts - #8 - die cuts
Jellypark Challenges - boy crazy
Sarah Hurley - #67 - new beginnings
SJ Crafts - #5 - all about the boy and use old stash, I used old papers
Crafts and Me - #86 - add a ribbon
Craft Your Passion - #112 - for baby with optional stitching.  I chose paper with stitching printed on
Ready, Teddy, Go - #11 - one for the boys
