I don't know about you but June always seems to me to bring an influx of new babies into my sphere - seven so far and one to come soon!  So I have to make a few baby cards!  What better reason is there to celebrate than that of a new life and the enjoyment of new parents and grandparents! So here is my DT entry for the challenge - Celebration!

The base card is folded Bazzill. I wanted this one simple and easy to post, so I add the soft flowers and three strips of washi tape.  I have seen this tape around on the internet, but not been tempted to buy it - however, four reels were included in a giveaway freebie with a magazine recently, and so I acquired some.  To the tape I added some bling pieces (Kaiser) coloured with a Copic pen to match the sticker of the baby and used also to colour up the rub-on sentiment.

The sticker is one of a sheet I have had for a long time - maker unknown to me. Cute little things. The paper doily was trimmed to fit against the edges of the card. That's it - sweet and simple. 

Oh, except for the inside! A sticker and some doodling and the paper was a scrap from my basket!

I shall enter this in the following challenges:
