Baby's First

Happy Saturday!  And Happy December!  Today starts a new challenge on the Di's Digi Designs blog.  This time it is: Winter Holiday.
I was feeling lazy and didn't want to print out another image, so I went through the ones that I already had printed out and came across these little cuties sitting on a shelf.  It is not a Christmas image but I had the brilliant idea (at least I think it is) to use it to create a Baby's First Christmas card for my sweet little Nephew that was born in April.  
I colored the banners green and red to make them Christmas-y and added some stamped pine boughs around the edge of the image panel to make it look as if perhaps you are looking through or past a Christmas tree.  Maybe these three cuties are waiting for Christmas morning, or maybe they are newly received Christmas gifts.    Either way, they work perfectly for a first Christmas card.  I hope you will play along with us this challenge, I can't wait to see what you create!

Stamps: Di's Digi Stamps "Jungle Shelf" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment; Repeat Impressions "Pine Needles Sil."
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 12" square
