Precious Little Boy

Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Sketch Challenge 270
Happy Saturday, everyone!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose a photo from the Nail Art Pinterest board.  I was searching for inspiration to help me create a baby shower card and my 'Aha' moment came when I saw the blue and white polka dots in this photo.  Okay, I didn't go with the snowman theme, but I built the card around this blue polka dot (and coordinating light blue) designer paper from the ODBD Pastel Paper Pack.  Usually, I make baby cards (and name-frame gifts) to match the nursery theme, however, my brother and his wife just moved and haven't decided on a theme yet (or a name!), so I used the lamb image from 'The Shepherd', cut him out with the ODBD Custom 'Little Lamb' Die, and popped him up with foam tape over a background sponged using a template cut from the ODBD Custom 'Clouds and Raindrops' Dies. The sentiment is actually two stamps combined from the 'Little Boys' set...with three paper-pierced holes to connect one stamp to the next.  The little blue hearts were cut using the ODBD Custom 'Clouds and Raindrops' Dies set.  The basic layout of the card is from the ODBD Shining the Light Sketch Challenge.
