It's a Boy! :)

Today I made a commisioned card for my sister. She needs a card for a soon-to-be-born Baby Boy. It is not my everyday stuff to make Baby cards, but I really loved doing this cutie :)
I started panicking when I came to actually start doing the card, and I realised that I had no cardstock or DP adapted for a Baby boy card, only a couple of too small scraps, so I had to think for a while what to do (as it's Saturday evening, and I don't find open craft shops).
Anyway, after some time, I decided to download backgrounds from a digital scrapbooking site, and printed the white cardstock from both sides. If you click on the main image you'll see the large light blue spots on the white card, and further down, you'll see the inside of the card, differently printed with blue background and white stars. I love it!!
When I settled the cardstock issue, I coloured in the brand new Pink Petticoat Sweet Cheeks image in water-colours and distress ink for the wheels.

I heat embossed the pram with clear embossing powder mixed with glitter, and coloured "It's a Boy!" with glitter pen.. I matted the image on yellow cardstock, and punched two different colours with the Martha Stewart LOVELY doily lace punch that darling Lim sent me.

Isn't it lovely?? :) That super-cute pacifier tied with the double- ribbon bow is also a gift of Lim. Finally i added some pastel buttons and a sentiment in coordinating colours..

I hope that you're having a lovely weekend, and that next Monday you'll be back here, cause as I told you, it's my turn to set this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog.

P.S. Can someone solve the mystery i have??? Why do the cards seem like they are not straight in photos, when they actually are??? :/
