Baby Boom

At work its a baby boom.............another little cherub is due on Friday........hope its a boy as I have this card all ready to go. Inspired by the recycling theme at
Secret Crafter I decided to create my own chipboard letters from the back of an A4 note pad........time consuming but I am pleased with the result. The card is a little basic but I felt anymore detail would clutter the card.

I used the following materials:

Back of a notepad for the homemade chipboard
Blue gingham paper was a free download but I cannot remember where from
Blue & white cardstock
Brads from my stash
Black pen for faux stitching

Thank you for looking & feel free to leave a comment
