No Patterned Paper

Morning all.
Before I talk about the new challenge, can I take the opportunity to say thanks to all of you that joined in our CAS challege at Cardz4Guyz last week. You didn't make it an easy choice for the top 3, but you can find out the result by checking the main site. Thanks again for joining in and I hope some of you will join in our latest challenge:-


My inspiration for this weeks card was that a friend's daughter gave birth to a baby boy last week, so I thought why not show you what I made to celebrate the occasion.

This is a simple design but believe it or not it took on many guises before finally ending up looking as it did! Sometimes you can have too many ideas!

The stamp is from Hobbycraft and the sentiment from Personnel Impressions. The cardstock is from a book of card I bought from LIDL! I used up some odd bits of white card so really it only took one sheet of baby blue card. 
I used my old faithful Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the background and my new Die-Namics pierced rectangles and punched circle dies for the white top panels.  I used some plain white paper scraps together with a few sequins and dew drops from the stash to complete.

OK, that's about it for this post other than to say why not pop along to the main site and see what the rest of the team have made for your inspiration.
If you would like to join our happy band, why not add DT after your name as we are on the lookout for some more crafters to join us in promoting men's cards. What ever your style why not give it a go? 

I shall enter the following challenges:-
CAS on Sunday - Sequins Celebration
Addicted to Stamps - Man or Boy
Creative Inspirations  - Anything Goes
Crafty Little Fairies - Sparkle and Bling
Allsorts - Sugar n Spice 
Well the verse starts as- 
What are little boys made of?
Slugs n snails and puppy dog's tails, 
that's what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of?
Sugar n spice and all things nice, 
that's what little girls are made of.
