CAS(E) this baby card

Good afternoon folks. 
Hope the sun is shining this Spring Bank Holiday(UK) , Memorial Day (US).
I was hoping to cut the grass after a dreadful weekend for weather but it is still a tad too wet, so here I am blogging. We had a full house at the weekend with both children down plus Grandson and SiL, shame we couldn't get out much 'cos of the rain. Even when it wasn't raining the grass was wet through. Still Ben played with Dadgwan with his bubbles in the yard and the 'boys' played with big boy toys in the evening.

There have been nothing but baby boy's arriving this year and the only baby card I have is a girly one! However that gives me the perfect excuse to craft! Anyway here is the latest card from the craftroom, a baby card for a work collegue of my husband's and former neighbour's second child. Hopefully Al will remember to give it to Gary, I hope Gary doesn't see it here first! 


I made this with reference to two challenges -

Less is More - Diecuts

The base is a piece of Bazzil card folded to make an A6 card. The white top layer was die cut in 3 places with Spellbinder circles and the other circles were made with  pattered paper die cuts, a button, sequin and dew drop from the stash. The greeting stamped in Broken China DI is from LOTV as is the round sentiment and little bear. The bear is one of a set of 3 which I coloured using Copics then fussy cut and popped on pads to peek out of one die cut hole. The circular sentiment was glued flat inside the largest aperture, the check paper at the top was glued underneath the opening and then the white topper was popped up on pads.

That's a wrap then, I better go and see if the grass is dry enough to cut!
Thanks for stopping by, call again.
