Baby Card for Friday Sketchers #84

Hi and welcome,
I was in need of a baby card to send out so I thought that I would use Claudia's sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week. Here is the link to Friday Sketchers so you can head over and check out all of the fabulous cards made by the design team and then join the challenge. The prize this week is from Sunshine's Stamps.
I selected Alvin #119 from Magnolia-licious Store for my card since the baby is a boy. You can purchase Alvin from Diana at her store Magnolia-licious here.
I used Imaginisce design paper my matt papers are Stampin Up Bliss Blue and Chocolate Chip.

I used my new Martha Stewart punch to make my heart ribbon and my heart Cuttle Bug embossing folder for Alvin's backgroung paper. Alvin is colored with Copic markers.
Please if you have time to leave a comment I would love to read what you think of my card. Thank you to everyone that does leave a comment it means so much. Hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Nancy

Nancy, this is so sweet. I love your use of the MS edge punch also, how clever. I really have to start looking at other than Tilda stamps to add to my growing collection. Thanks so much for sharing not only the card, but what you used to make it. As a new card maker, I am always appreciative when someone lists the products used. Helps me make a wish list! Beautiful card!
