Baby Boy - SASSC24

Hello all,
Stamps and Smiles have a sketch challenge every week and this is my entry for Mercy's challenge no 24. I needed a card for another new arrival, a little boy so picked some pretty card I've had for a while. Sorry I've cut the edge off so not sure who's it is, the sheet was made up of stripes of pattern so it was perfect for this sketch.
I started with my white card base then baby blue card. Each strip of paper is mounted to a teal/blue plain card before attaching to the background. I embossed the baby carriage from SU Fast and Fun Notes using silver onto white card . A Spellbinders die was used to cut the image into an oval and whilst still in the die I sponged around the image with SU bashful blue. The carriage was coloured with a grey Copics marker before mounting onto another scalloped oval of baby blue card. To finish off I added four blue brads.
Until tomorrow........

I'll post that other 'rejected' sketch card tomorrow - just need to get this one up. Oh and I've made a card with my new JustRite stamper need to take a pic but will add that tomorrow too.
Ed. Note: Thanks Robyn, the dp I've used on this card is from Heidi Grace.
