New Grandson

We finished a bit early from work tonight and as nobody was home I found a bit of time to make this card.  Emily has gone to see Dylan Moran, a comedian at the Manchester Opera House, Chris has gone around to his mums and Stewart is goodness knows where.

My card is for a lovely lady who has just become a Grandma to a gorgeous little grandson.

I am entering it into the following challenges:

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch
Cute Card Thursday - Birthstone (Turquoise)
Colour Create Challenge - Blue, Grey and White
Top Tip Tuesday - Open Challenge
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo (Shape, ribbon, sentiment)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Male Card

The stamp I have used is a Sugar Nellie 'Circle of life' and coloured with Promarkers.  The bunny backing paper is a free download called Hippity Hoppity and you can download it here.  I've run a piece of white card through my cuttlebug in the swiss dots folder.  Sentiment is Clare Curd stamp.  Added gems and ribbon from stash.

This is brilliant for a Grandma - just right somehow & I like your gingham ribbon & the way you used a soft peach with the blue - not girly just right as a contrast & softening the whole since it's for a Grandma.
