On cloud nine!

I had a request for a congratulations card for grandparents of this new baby boy. They lost their daughter in very tragic circumstances, on her honeymoon,  last year so this baby is extremely special to their whole family. Added lots of stitching and used this gorgeous ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I am rushing now to enter it into Willow Sketchie challenge before it closes.

Image - Meljens
Papers - Daisy company
Medium - coloured with promarkers
Embellishments - stitching, pearls, ribbon

I would like to enter this into
Willow Sketchie - followed their sketch
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - hearts
Meljens Designs - hearts
Here come the boys - song inspired (sweet child of mine, Guns n Roses)
Creative Belli Blog - hearts/valentine
Scrapbook Sisters - anything goes
Papercraft Star - hearts
