All things baby !! Stampin' for the Weekend DT card!

Hello again and welcome to Stampin' for the Weekends 13th Challenge

This week, I am sponsoring the challenge, and the reason behind it, is because Yesterday (27th) was my little girls First Birthday and today (28th) is her Naming Ceremony, so at half one I will be standing in a registry office, surrounded by family and friends and celebrating my little girls birthday and naming day! Not to mention the party afterwards which is a combination of Poppy's day and Mine for finishing my CHEMOTHERAPY!! Whoop Whoop!

I have set the theme of BABY cards - be it New Born, First Birthday, Christening, Naming Day, girl or boy the choice is yours!

Up for grabs for the winner is

Two stamps from the Whiff of Joy Baby Collection.
Willow with Baby and the Baby Sentiments! Ideal for new baby cards!!

So for my card this week I've created a Side Step card for my baby girls birthday, so forgive the pinkness! I've used WoJ Animal Collection which were released end of July :D
Aren't they sweet!

The ribbon is from Papermania as is the Alpahbet set of stamps which I overlapped to give this effect.

The animals have been coloured using Copics. The Bears are a little darker than I'd of liked, but I think they give a good contrast against the Lion and the Monkey.

I cut the Balloons off the Lion as they were going to be in the way of the monkey and drew some lines with my Copic Fine Liner to the edge of the card, so they look like they are blowing in the wind. The pink cards stock is from Papermania!

Please check out the Design Teams blogs and see what cards they have created, we also have Erin with us again this week. So remember to check out her fab card too and leave her some love on her last week of designing with us!

Thank you for looking...
