Blue for a Boy

I made this card for my niece and her partner, they have just had their first baby.  We knew in advance that it was going to be a boy but I waited until after the birth to make it - just in case!

The clothes on the washing line all came from my Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.  I have added a layer of pale blue card stock from Joanna Sheen (now discontinued) and some bakers twine for the washing line.

I have decorated the inside of my card as well:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots Challenge - Blue and White
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 134 - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions Challenge 97 - Ribbon or Twine
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge 45 - Letter "B" (Boy, Blue, Baby)
Digital Tuesday Challenge 197 - Up, Up and away (I hope my washing line counts - if not please delete my entry)

Thank you for visiting my little blog today, have a great weekend.
