A child is born

This card is the result of trying to clean up my craft desk. : )  I have used this sweet image several times in the last couple months, and you will be seeing it a couple more times as I printed out 5 or 6 of the images.  So, the sheet with the images was (hmmm . . . still is) on my desk and the piece of gray card stock was too; left over from a project from last week.

Challenges:
Shopping Our Stash #235--3, 2, 1 (3 gray panels, "stars", 1 image)
Crafty Cardmakers #155--New: baby, house, etc (my card doesn't celebrate a new baby but it is celebrating a baby and babies are always new and I used a brand new die set that I got for Christmas)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #264--cute OR anything goes
Viva La Verve January week 2--sketch

A Day For Daisies #139--stitch it up (the circle stitched die and the top and bottom panels were cut with stitched dies)
Crimbo Crackers #98--anything goes
Emerald Creek Dares--New stuff (dies I got for Christmas)

Supplies:
Stamps: A Day For Daisies "A Sign I give"; Verve "Richly Blessed"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 12"; Spellbinders "Poppy" the yellow 'stars' are part of the flower centers

A beautiful card. Your image of the baby is one of the nicest I have ever seen, I can see why you have used it so much lately and the tiny stars are the perfect way to finish the card. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers. Sally.x.
