Baby boy card

Hiya everybody,

Both Aleeza and Zeenya are asleep so I thought I would post another card... 

This card is rather simple but you will not believe how long it took me to complete - FOREVER!!! 

Materials used:

White cardstock

Ribbons and woolen yarn: all from my stash

Embossing done with Cuttlebug pram 

Distressing with Jim Holtz Ranger distress ink - broken china

Rounded the corners of the rectangular patch with Ek Success corner rounder

Used double sided foam to give the pram more dimension

Sentiment - printed ribbon which I cut and pasted
Ribbon weaving - with my Fiskars border weaving punch (love affair gets stronger...lol!) 

Am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

 www.ynschallenges.blogspot.com/ - feeling blue (no I am not, lol)

www.alyssundaychallenge.blogspot.com/ - anything goes (my fave challenges when it is anything goes)

It is a simple card but they do seem to be in demand at my charity sales, you know.

Wow, Monica, I really missed a bunch of posts! : ) Such a sweet baby boy card! I can believe it took you a while, look at everything you did to it, PLUS you had to thread that beautiful ribbon thru those ribbon slats. That must have taken some time. All in all your efforts will be appreciated, I'm sure.

What a nice boy card! Once again, I love the ribbon weaving!! And that's a great use of the "It's a Boy" ribbon!
