Welcome Baby

This was a commissioned card for a friend who did not know the sex of the expected baby.  I decided to use the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Boy collection and brown card stock.

I love the fun images in this collection and I think the yellows and browns are suitable for both girls and boys.  I cut out all of the images and layered them onto brown card stock before attaching them to the card front with foam pads.

I decorated the inside of the card with some of the co-ordinating papers.

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

Come and Get It Challenge - Something New
Ike's World Challenge 54 - New Beginnings
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Always Anything Goes
