It's a Boy! Card

Yes, I had to make a card for my new nephew. So I have used the above sketch from Create 4 Fun Challenge #46
I will also enter this card into the Allsorts Challenge this week - 'For a Child'.
I have used SU Brocade Blue for the base card. Then some wonderful blue and white striped paper. The corners and backing to the topper are SU Yoyo Yellow. The wonderful ribbon is from Blue Edge Crafts. And lastly, but by no means least the very cute image is from Squigglefly. Oh, and the gold letter stickers from the Sticker Store. I coloured the image with my aqua pen and watercolour pencils and my one and only Copic Pen E051. :-)
I must say that I am really starting to like these Digital Stamps.
A. I know that the image is going to turn out everytime (I always manged to blur or stick fingerprint on my rubber stamped images).
B. I know that I can have the size I want.
C. If I need an image I can just search the net and find what I am looking for in a matter of minutes.
So tonight we are off to see young Jack..... :-)
My computer is still sooooooo slow. It has taken 15mins to do just this post. So I am not commenting on the wonderful projects that I am seeing at the moment as the computer tends to freeze up. I am still checking out though on my Dashboard.
