A New Baby Boy

My daughter's friend has just had a baby grandson added to her family and I was asked to make a card for James.  Spring is definitely on its way with this little lamb's arrival.

I knew  the Pink Petticoat papers would give me a perfect background and these are Stripes and Fairy Dots in duck egg blue.  The sweet Sugar Nellie image is Bambino and I've coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and the little hat I've highlighted with a Sakura Souffle White Pen. The image was cut using Nestbailities Petite Scallop Ovals. A strip of white card I've cut with a Martha Stewart punch.  Flowers by Wild Orchid and the leaves from a Marianne die.  Sentiment is my own. Just a couple of blue pearls from a Canadian Dollar Store to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following:-
