It's a boy!

Here in the UK we have a new baby Prince, and it so happens I had a card already made up in blue!  A while back I treated myself to the pram die from Marianne Design and it has cut out beautifully from heavy white paper - I've heard say it can be tricky on thicker card .. .. will have to try again and see.  I used a subtle blue ink over the embossed areas and cut out paper to fix behind for the hood and cover - certainly a Royal looking perambulator - not the modern buggies we see today!  I wonder which kind the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will choose for their new little Prince?

The card is created just with die cuts from various Marianne Designs, papers from Nitwits and little gems, a fancy ribbon and the plain card for matting and layering.  The pennant across the top I created from the star die, just cutting off the points - wish I had thought of doing that before!

Anyway, here's the list of dies I used:
pennant from star die CR1226
'Baby' and pin - LR0217
pram - LR0218
flowers with pretty heart embossed areas from the new CR1251
blue leaves - LR0226
white prays - LR0106
butterfly - LR0158

The Creative Card Crew challenge is for baby creations in predominantly pink or blue - I'll enter with my blue Baby card.
