A shabby Chic baby card fotr this months Whimsy stamps challenge

Hi all

I'm back with another card today - this time for the Whimsy stamps challenge - albeit a little late - sorry!!   The theme for this month is 

Shabby Chic

I decided to use this cute little donkey by Crissy Armstrong - he's called Pin the tail on the donkey and is available here.

I made it for a friend of my daughter who has just had a baby boy. Its a big 8inch square card.  I distressed around the edges of the blue card and papers to give it a shappy chic look - it sort of goes with the look of the donkey - I think he looks a bit shabby chic too!

it's such a cute little stamp and I thought it was ideal for a new baby card - a bit different to the normal run of the mill baby card - but cute enough to suit the purpose.  

There are some fab prizes for the winners over at the Whimsy Stamps Challenge this month

Second Winner
