New Baby Boy!

Hi everyone!  Today I created a card for the TSG162 Sketch Challenge.  I was inspired by one of my newly purchased CTMH stamp sets, and the upcoming birth of our 3rd nephew later this summer.  When I saw this set in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book I instantly fell in love with this little aligator.  I stamped the image on Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock from Crafter's Companion.  I then stamped it again on lime green gingham paper from the We R Memory Keepers Baby Mine 6x6 paper collection.  This is the paper that I used for the whole card.  I cut out and paper pieced the aligator.  The other elements I colored in with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  Of course I could not leave it without a little stickles on his scales in Lime Green.  I accented with some hemp twine from MME, and a cloth button from the same Baby Mine collection.

The inside of the card is finished using the same materials.  I left it blank in the middle for a personal message. 

I hope all of you enjoy this little card I created and have a wonderful crafty week!
