It's a girl!

Good afternoon, hope you're having a lovely day & enjoying this gorgeous sunshine!
I saw this week's cue card on the CASology challenge is 'News'. Gillian, one of the design team gave birth to a son last week, so they'd like to see baby themed cards.
This is an ideal opportunity for me to share with you the new baby card I made for my cousin & her husband on the birth of their first child, a daughter in February.
I used Clearly Besotted's clock face stamp as the main element to mark the time of Isla's birth. I think this stamp set has now been discontinued unfortunately, but I hope the card still inspires you.

Now I'm rubbish at tying bows so I cheated a little on this card ;)
I took 2 lengths of ribbon & crossed them over each other, sticking them in the middle, like this ...

I then took a third & wrapped it round the crossed pair, sticking it down again ...

I then stuck my 'bow' to a straight piece of ribbon attached to the card. Voila! A cheat's bow!

Stamps - Time to Celebrate; Sweet Little Sentiments: Clearly Besotted
Paper pad - Doodlebug's Sugar & Spice; Craft Mojo
Card stock, label punch & dotty ribbon - Stampin' Up

Thank you for popping by, enjoy the lovely weather & take care.
