Baby Ralph!

I had a request for a card for a new baby boy called Ralph. At first I thought it was a strange name for a new baby but it has grew on me while working on the card and I really like it:) I used an image from Pollycraft, another cutie and the knitted background papers are from Pink Gem, gorgeous aren't they?
Image - Pollycraft
Papers - Pink Gem and Daisie Company
Embellishments - Ribbons from Crafty Ribbons, spellbinders circle, ms star punch, heart punch, machine stitching, embossing folder
Medium - he is coloured with promarkers, paper pieced his hat and glittered
I would like to enter this into
Pollycraft - followed their sketch
Lollipop - baby, baby
Kaboodle - embossing
Karens Doodles - something for the kids
Shopping our stash - something beginning with B (baby, blue)
Dilly Beans - pastel colours
Glitter Geeks - stitches

Morning Pinky!

What a sweet card and I agree with you about the name, at first it seems quite old like something from the 50's but it is lovely! These traditional names are growing again in popularity arent they! I wonder what we'd choose now if we had our time again?!

I LOVE those knitted papers and my bank balance will be taking a hit shortly! What a sweet image too!

Have a lovely weekend,

What a little cutie...love those knitted papers Pinky...gorgeous.

I thought[ oh! okay...]about the name at first glance too, but it really is very cute when you think about it....better than Apple[Gwenyth Peltrow.] or whatever her name is..how could you call your baby APPLE..lol..
