      Some friends of our son have had a new baby boy a few days ago. What a lovely way to start the New Year, Mother and baby doing ok. This is a nice chance to make a baby card as we have not had many new arrivals recently.  I had to have a good search through all my stash to find a suitable image for a card, finally deciding on a Crafter's Companion CD of Popcorn Bear. I have been doing a lot more stamped designs lately but had not got any suitable stamps for this occasion. 
      Anyway I printed out all the pieces I needed, opting for some decoupage. I quite like a project where I need to do some cutting out.

Pieces cut out ready for card
    I assembled the decoupage and then it was just a question of putting the arrangement together with some matching backing paper.

    I also added some flowers from the Sweet Lilac range. They have some beautiful flowers which really add to a card. I hope you like this design, quite a quick and easy card but I thought it was nice to share happy news.
