Welcome Beautiful Baby Boy

Hello and thanks so much for visiting. My card today is for a precious baby boy who arrived recently - he is an absolute darling and has everyone besotted.

Background paper from Pion Design and balloons and all other papers by Maja Design. Balloons are cut with Sizzix Triplits Balloons die. The sentiment banner is cut with MFT Dienamics stax pierced fishtails. Ran Krylon 18ct gold leafing pen around all the edges. Added texture too with blue frantage and texture paste through a TH lattice stencil. Silk ribbon by May Arts and yarn from my Mum's sewing box. Sentiment stamped and embossed using an Anna Griffin stamp. Charms from stash.

Warmest wishes to you all for a lovely week ahead.
