Baby Boy Card - CropStop Creative Team Call

A former student of mine just had a baby boy.  I made this card for her.

The patterned papers are Stampin' Up and the cardstock is Textura.  The top mat is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The bear is from Doodlecharms and I drew his mouth with a pale blue Marvy marker.  The little circles in the bottom right were cut with George and Basic Shapes and the heart in the centre is a punch from a bin at Michaels.  The little tag was also cut with George and Basic Shapes and the letters were cut with Nursery Rhymes.  I embossed the little tag with a Cuttlebug butterfly folder*.  The little border was punched with a Stampin' Up border punch.  I added some gems and ribbon to complete the card.

Below is the sketch on which my card is based.  I have sent it in as part of the CropStop Creative Team Call.  For more information on the call, click here.
*The butterfly folder is part of a Cuttlebug die/emboss set which I purchased from CropStop.  I really wanted to use something I'd purchased from CropStop on my card.
