Welcome Little Caden!

Some of our dear friends just joined the "3 Boys Club" by having sweet little Caden this past weekend. I can't wait to get over there and snuggle him, so I had to hurry up and make his card! His mommy gushed at this "B" I made a while back, so I've been hanging on to it just for her.

For the card, I used Confetti White and Brocade Blue cardstock. The scallop was made with the Corner Rounder punch (guard removed) and then punched with the 1/16" circle to make it look like lace. The toy elephant is from the Year After Year stamp set - so cute! I stamped him with black StazOn and then watercolored him with my Watercolor Crayons. The name is stamped in Certainly Celery with the Classic Alphabet and then outlined in Brocade Blue with the square from Sweet Thing. The Word Window punch contains part of a phrase from Holidays & Wishes - the whole phrase reads "sweet little one", but I just inked up "sweet little". And yes, I cheated again... this card ALSO called for some soft ribbon, so I pulled out my Organdy again. I'm so sad that SU! retired it. I hope it comes back again someday. The Taffeta is beautiful too, but I needed the transparent look of the Organdy this time. I also tied a scrap of Certainly Celery Grosgrain on there too for a splash of color.

Okay - gotta run! There's a cute little baby who needs cuddling!!
