Bundle of Spots

Last week my sister had a little boy and this is the card I sent up with the first of probably many parcels. I've used the set "Bundle of Joy" that was available in last year's Spring Mini. It's not currently available, but I'm crossing my fingers that it will make it into the 08/09 Idea Book & Catalogue because I love it so much (incidentally, the 08/09 IB&C starts on April 1st (I kid you not). I have some arriving very soon, if you want a copy contact me). Once again I have used the wrapping paper for my inspiration, and I even used a bit of the same ribbon on the card. The giraffe has been stamped on watercolour paper using StazOn Jet Black then coloured with an aquapainter and inkpads in Almost Amethyst, Ballet Blue and Lavender Lace. The moon & stars image was coloured with markers, stamped off once on scrap paper then stamped on Very Vanilla. I used my Basic Black marker to ink part of the image for my sentiment. The ribbon and star brad are of unknown makes, the silver cord is SU!
