A New Baby 'CAS' Card

Today I am sharing the card I made for my nephew and wife, on the arrival of their
new baby son, who was born on Tuesday evening.
I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of looking after his brother and sister for two days,
whilst their Mum and Dad were at the hospital.

This 'baby mobile' die is a great way to use up snippets of card and paper from
your craft stash. I really love the effect an embossed die makes for a frame.
A very 'clean and simple' card.

The products I used are:-
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 22
Baby mobile die - purchased from eBay
Clearly Besotted Stamps - Congrats die

Challenges entered:-
2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Anything Goes (must include a critter)
Creative Craft Cottage - Include an Animal
Brown Sugar - Celebrations
Cuttlebug Mania - Frame It
A Perfect Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Crafters Cafe - Anything Goes
Crafty Animals - Always Anything Goes

....and here is my gorgeous great-nephew!
(No name as yet)

Thanks for stopping by.
