Baby Card using Toby Cub

Well hello everyone. I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I did.

No onto this wonderful card for some great friends who had a baby this past week. I have created this card for several challenges.

1. The first challenge that this card is for is the Farm Fresh Friday challenge at the Greeting Farm blog http://splendidstamping.blogspot.com/ The challenge called for some Spring Cleaning so we were to use items that have been unused for quite some time. In this case it would be the papers and the metal swirl embellie.

2. The ladies at Cupcake Crafts challenged us to make a card representing childhood. Well this card remeinds me of my boys taking thier first steps. Check out the challenge at http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/

3. Over at the Corrosive Challenge http://corrosivechallengesbyjanet.blogspot.com/ and at Totally Gorjuss http://totallygorjuss.blogspot.com/ we were asked to use texture in our cards. Well first the brown cardstock has a natural texture to it, the white dots on the green paper are embossed, and the paper weaving adds texture as well.

4. the last challenge is for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, which my friends Dee and Callie are on the DT there http://stamptacularsundaychallenge.blogspot.com/ The challenge was Spots & Dots ad we were to use two patterned papers that had spots or dots. My two papers ar ethe green & white dotted paper and the brown & blue dotted paper I used for the weaving.
