I don't often make 'baby' cards but I couldn't resist this image from Karen's Doodles - she's such a cutie peeping between her chubby little knees. I've used a bp from a Joanna Sheen pad I've had for ages but never really used (why do we keep paper for stroking instead of using it?) . the image is coloured with promarkers and cut out before being matted onto a doily (again from Joanna Sheen). To finish the card off I've added some ribbon and card candy. For the layout I've followed this weeks sketch from Karen's Doodles UK Challenge but 'stretched' it a bit as I fancied a change from square cards. I'm also entering this card into this weeks challenge from ABC Challenge which is 'U is for Unused Stash'.

Thanks for looking, better go and get myself ready for work now
