A card for a baby boy

Hi again

I was lookig through my stamps today to decide what to do and came up with this cute Lili of the Valley baby stamp,  I've only used it once before and that was at Christmas when I did a completely different colourscheme  to this card and made it into a babys 1st christmas card for my new grandson - he's a really old baby now that he's got to 6 weeks old!!

I wanted to keep this one very "clean" and bright like a traditional baby boy card, and I think it worked. I decided to use my promarkers to colour this one and shaded with prismacolor pencils as usual, the dies are spellbinders ovals and the " baby boy" is Sizzix skoosky font dies, they are a bit fiddly to work with but because they are so thin they are easy to fit on most cards without dominating it.  The spotty ribbon came from Sam Pooles Creative Studios and the pearls from my stash

I'm entering this card for the following challenges
