A New Baby Boy Card

Good Morning All, Happy Mothers Day to you Girls, and I hope that your families are spoiling you rotten, its only day that we girls can get all the love and hugs without anyone feeling stupid, yes I know we are entitled to it all the time, but some lads dont like to show it do they? they feel that it isnt butch to show it.
Anyway todays card has been created for one of my friends, her granddaughter is expecting a baby at the end of May and she asked me if I would create a baby boys card for her, and Ive always loved this gorgeous digi from Sugar Nellie and decided it I was good excuse to use it. Ive printed it onto white card then used my copics to very gently colour it, afterwards I cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it on some blue card. The sentiment is one I found on the internet and added an extra line to it, this was also printed and mounted in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card, the two papers I have used come from the Nitwit Downloads "Bundle of Joy", the first paper is an all over white pattern with bibs, bottles and babygro's on, the second which is difficult to see is a pretty flower and scroll pattern Ive cut this into a 5" square and used one on my all around Martha Stewart Lace punches on it. Over the top of these two papers Ive wrapped a piece of lace and some ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. Ive not put any flowers on it as I think as its a boy card we dont want to make to sissy. Hope you like it.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
