Welcome, baby!

My new nephew is due to arrive in mid-September, so I've been having fun working on baby projects while waiting for him to get here.

When I saw this sketch:
for the Whiff of Joy guest designer call, I knew I had found the perfect layout for a card for the baby-to-be. I don't normally make square cards, so this was a challenge for me. I really like this layout though, so I think I will use it to make a matching page for the scrapbook I am working on for baby.
The adorable baby image is from Stamping Bella. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see the stickles I added to the blanket and the car on his shirt. I've always loved that sparkly yarn they make for baby blankets, so I tried to get that effect with the glitter. I should learn how to crochet one of these days so I can make a sparkly blanket for myself!
