Welcome Baby Paul!

Although I have been so grateful for all the cards I've been able to show you these last couple weeks, it's also nice to finally begin showing you my own work once again! I made this card a while back in anticipation of my friend Melanie's new baby. She had him on July 3rd, and with all that's been going on over here, I haven't had a chance to pop in and see them until today! But oh, what a cutie he is!!

I made this card using the Year After Year and Sweet Thing stamps sets - BOTH of which are retiring in a few short weeks! I also used the Classic Alphabet which has already retired. I watercolored the elephant with Watercolor Wonder Crayons, and roughed up the edges with the Cutter Kit.

Mel, he's simply adorable... enjoy every moment with him!

Recipe:
Stamp Sets: Year After Year, Sweet Thing, Classic Alphabet (retired), Warm Words
Ink: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Black StazOn
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Summer Picnic DSP, Naturals White, Watercolor Paper
Accessories: Linen Thread, Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon
Tools: Cutter Kit, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter, Word Window punch
